This wiki page is meant for feedback on my simple ray tracing application HRay, which was written in Haskell. The code and some images (and more information) are available at this website: [1].

The ultimate goal: http://graphics.ucsd.edu/~henrik/images/ :p

1 TODO

Some suggestions made by Troy Folger:

* add anti-aliasing
* add a file chooser
* bug: when building without -O option, mirror.hry seems to take forever

* sylvan: implement BSP trees, implement polygon-intersection, read some standard format (VRML) and render millions of polygons ! (start with triangles, quads can be corrupt (point not in the same plane) )
