LightCycle POV-Ray Model
A TRON LightCycle Model and Animation Script for POV-Ray
- The original TRON LightCycle was created using simple geometric primatives.
- The Persistence of Vision Raytracer is a free raytracer that takes simple geometic and scene descriptions to produce high-quality images.
The POV-Ray model for the LightCycle used here is based on work done by Carl N. Hoff.
