My guess is that you may still be showing sticks in the original object, =
instead of just cartoons. If you have the same overlapping =
representation in two objects, it isn't predictable which will show up =
in the ray-tracer, and you can get exactly this behavior, where you see =
one color in OpenGL and a different one in the raytracer.
Here is the general sequence of steps you'll want to follow to insure =
