A new radiative transfer code is being developed which models three-dimensional galaxies, including a realistic mix of stellar populations, dust and gas, through which the emitted stellar radiation field is allowed to pass. These photons are scattered, absorbed and re-emitted according to the best available prescriptions for the relevant physical processes as a function of wavelength. The galaxy is then viewed along a finite number of preselected lines of sight so as to reduce the computational dimensionality and complexity of the modeling.
