This is probably an easy one .

How/where can I change the rfraction index of an geometry object?

All right. What I'm trying to do is to get a picture of refracted light.

A rainbow.

Can it be done? I mean the actual separation of colors by projecting

a ray of light onto an obgect with refraction index 1.33 .

Any ideas?

very nice....

You have to give it a try and let us all know if its really that good :). I find images made by renderers are often misleading (ie it rendered beautifully, but it took a few days to setup that scene so it worked properly and then took 36 hours to render.... ;))

Cheers

So you've used Final Render too, I take it. ;)

:P

Not I. I have cleverly avoided the anguish of trying to get these things to work. I have, however, watched with great delight the suffering of others :).

Learning from other peoples mistakes is the only way to go :P

LOL.

My personal favorite. "The stills are great...but the lighting in the animation flickers like a rave."

That's it! I can't take it anymore!

I've been trying to render an image with this WinOsi renderer.

Loaded one of the supplied scenes (the one where white light is being

broken up in to rainbow colors after passing through prism) and...

It's been over an hour and a half and the image is still not finished!

Been rendering on an AMD AthlonXP 2000+; 512 MB system memory; Radeon 8500 64 MB.

The end.
