It ought to be easy to render some interesting stuff using a 3D-renderer
(E.g. POV-Ray). If we use some rendered stuff under a free license then
anyone will be able to reproduce and verify the results. The rendered
stuff should of course be encoded in a lossless format (or rendered on
demand) to avoid recoding artifacts.

I am thinking of stuff like Fiat Lux http://www.debevec.org/FiatLux/
except I have not been able to find the source files under a free license.
And maybe FiatLux is not really "interesting" from a encoder's point of
view? Does anyone know of such stuff? Does anyone know people who are
capable of creating such stuff?
