Projects / protracer


Protracer is a simple raytracer originally written in 1999 as a university course project. Please be aware that, despite the name, there is nothing especially professional about Protracer. The name is meant to be a pun on the Protracker music tracker application. It currently supports a very limited subset of the POV-Ray file format.
