I was wondering...... if anyone knows if there is an export plug-in to POV
from WINGS 3D? If there is where could I find it.....The Link on the WINGS
home page for a plug-in can not be found......

Thanks
  Darin

Try POSERay (http://mysite.verizon.net/sfg0000/)
I recommend using the OBJ format for transferring the data from Wings3D to
POSERay  (as POSERay doesn't import Wings files natively). Exporting to
POVRay from POSERay is supported directly.

I did a search on the filename and found it elsewhere on the web...While 
it says it might not work with more recent versions of Wings, it seems to 
work fine...

I got stuck with this problem a while ago, but I exported the .obj format
and realized it's just a mesh2 in different syntax.  Lately I've just been
using a simple little shell script that is horribly inefficient but does
the trick.  It would be very simple and much more efficient to write a
little converter in c or something, but if you have access to a unix-like
system it works although it might combine all objects together.  It should
handle uv-mapping and normals without a problem.  You just have to make
sure it's triangulated when exported.

Yes, I know it couldn't be much worse, but it's worked for me.

    DingDang. I looked all over the place most of Sunday morning for Darin, 
and couldn't find it. Hand it over Jim, or I'll jinx you with bad pixels.

          ;)

And don't think that that doesn't work - now I've got a bad pixel on my 
camera's CCD. ;-)

I've uploaded the version I have on my laptop here to:

http://hendersj.googlepages.com/wingspov-0.98.28_v1.tgz

It seems, generally, to work for me with Wings 0.98.36 (which is the 
version I have installed at the moment).

     Heh, sorry about that. I didn't mean it, honest. :)

    That's what I've got installed with a few extra plugin's from the 
hard-working Ggaliens, (nice - I like the 'bend' feature, although, I'm 
still looking for the 'extrude shape' feature, dated around March 2006 I 
believe), and looking at those filenames in your .tgz file, I think I came 
across them in my search! I didn't know what to do with them at first with 
an extension of .beam.

     Ah well, thank you Jim, you're a star!  :)

Thank You --Jim and Steve,
I have the files, and will start playing around with them.
I am glad no one was jinxed with bad pixels....................

That's OK, it seems to be working properly now for some reason. ;-)

Hmmm, I might need a pointer at those other plugins you've got - the POV 
one is the only one I've installed...

     Yep, here you go, http://www.manifoldlab.com/wings_manifoldlab/ - it's 
the latest version at the bottom. I think the shape extruder plugin is in a 
2006 file, but he's not listing them any more for some reason. There is a 
video on the previous page showing what it can do.
