RE: POV-Ray Rendering Software
I was tried to run the binary program PovRay(and MegaPov) ever but failed.
Recently,I found Pov-Ray3.7 of Unofficial(binary) version work in Intel Mac...

POV-Ray: Newsgroups: povray.general: PovRay 3.7 RC6_r3 Unofficial for Macintosh available
It works in MacOSX 10.8.2.
In Wings3D, the file path of the Pov-Ray could not well specified.but Exporter worked well.

If you want rendering a texture by Pov-Ray, you must Material Propaties change
Pov-Ray Options>Texure>Pigment: Pattern:Image & Check "diffuse" , and Export to PovRay file.

tkbd,
Thanks for the feedback. Are you saying that Edit > Plug-in Preferences > Pov-Ray > Browse for Executable did not work?

Have you tried the latest Snapshot release in the Development section of the forum? Snapshot Windows and Mac. The Mac version is a couple of posts after the Windows build. Maybe it works in that release???

Yes, I've used the version and setting.
executable path is "/Applications/povray37/PovRay 3.7 Unofficial.app/Contents/MacOS/PovRay 3.7 Unofficial"

Then... MegaPov(PovRay 3.7 Unofficial) boots, and some error dialogs popup and said
'The Document "+320" could not be opened. opend Pov Ray3.7 Unofficial cannot open files of this type'


Console log(all options are refuse by PovRay):
Quote: "/Applications/povray37/PovRay 3.7 Unofficial.app/Contents/MacOS/PovRay 3.7 Unofficial" treebox2_export.pov +W320 +H240 +FN +otreebox2.png
It is possible to render on MegaPov.However,does not return the rendering image to Wings3D.
It takes effort to close the dialogs, but I have not bothered muchSmile.

I think this is related to the specification of PovRay.
Afterward , I found information written about OSX in the Document of PovRay.
POV-Ray 3.6 Documentation
Quote:4.6 Command-Line Options
You cannot control POV-Ray for Mac OS directly via command-line options.

This means that if there need to seamlessly linkage with Wings3D( or other programs) and PovRay in Mac OS X, I would need to install PovRay version of Unix.
