Why doesn Geomorph interface with other renderers than POV-Ray, for instance Aqsis or YafRay?
The Aqsis and YafRay renderers are free like in “freedom”, covered by the GPL for the first, by the LGPL for the second, unlike the current version of POV-Ray (3.6). Why didn’t I choose a free renderer to interface with Geomorph? At the beginning, POV-Ray was the sole renderer I knew. I don’t mind about interfacing Geomorph with other renderers. It’s mainly a matter of knowledge, of time to learn how to use the other renderers and of work to develop the interface functions. I think that these renderers don’t process height maps natively, the images should be converted to meshes before. This could be resource-intensive, but it is feasible. A matter of contribution for the courageous!
- Whats the maximum bytes/second throughput of an instance? Can scaling be used to get more bytes/second through the system?
- Every time I press the "Render" button, I get a new instance of POV-Ray. How do I force POV-Ray to keep a single instance?
- HttpServletRequest is an interface, how do I get an instance?
