This image is from an animation of a cube (actually 98 smaller cubes arranged to make a 5x5 cube with a 3x3 cube removed from the center) exploding. This was rendered using POVAFX 1.0 patches to POV-Ray by Marcos Fajardo. 200 glowing lights were used to make the explosion. These were individually moved and cooled (from being white, to yellow, red, and finally black) by a QBASIC program which also was responsible for moving/spinning the fragments of the original cube. 300 frames were rendered which were then averaged together to get the final 100 frame animation. The fragments look distorted because of the very wide angle camera used. This animation took about 9 hours 30 minutes on a Pentium 90.
