I’m new, like very new, to 3DSMax5 - and that program is _big_.

This is an experiment in using the ray-tracer. I have created some simple cubes and applied a tweaked set of ray-tracer properties to create luminous shadows and reflections. What’s shown here is only two sides of a wall of cubes, I’m working on building a total enclosure to pan the camera around.

The ray tracer has been restricted to speed up rendering time so the reflections shown here are not very deep. I’m just rendering a full version now.
