I haven't tried since.

Like all ray tracing opensource products the documentation is poor, but that's understandable in this case as it is still under development.

A more complete and working opensource package is https://github.com/quartiq/rayopt.

Unfortunately the author is not developing it any further it seems.

My comment is simply to say that Mike all but certainly knows more about making a raytracer than anyone else that's released an open source one.  LightTools is a Goliath among commercial raytracers with a long heritage and revered stability.  It's listed first in the design competition submission formats for a reason.
