Write a "BRL-CAD Ray Tracing Shaders" tutorial

completed by: Andrei Tudorica

mentors: Sean

BRL-CAD includes numerous shaders that let you specify different optical effects during ray tracing.

This task involves writing a brief tutorial that describes what shaders are and how one specifies them for geometry. How shaders are specified is already described in detail in the Introduction to MGED document.
