"pathagora" is a nice name, sounds good.

May be I'm a bit old school but how would not dismiss something with a reference to "raytracing": be proud of our origins :lol:

I feel that "render" is too general, but "path" and "pathtracing" are too specific. Considering the topics discussed over the past 5-6 years, I think something with "ray" would be more appropriate, as it is a clear distinction from rasterization (for which gamedev is a better place) and at the same time encompasses all (Monte Caro) physically based rendering algorithms, as well as reflection models, (multiple) importance and product importance sampling, etc. OMPF has always been a "ray tracing" forum.

We have a machine here we refer to as Dick Tracey. Perhaps we can turn that into an url? ;)

We probably have enough ideas here to put them to a vote. Jacco, is it possible to put a poll widget into the thread?

My vote goes to ompf2. Why? Because all of us is already used to that name, and no matter what it named, the old ones will always reference it as the new ompf :)
