I am fairly new to moray but not to Pov-Ray.  I would really like to be able to
figure out how to export the animations I do with "Animation and Rendering
V1.31 (Beta22)" plugin for Moray directly in Pov-Ray.  I have figured out how
to export static scene pov files and they work fine.  I know how to render both
static and animations created with this plugin.  But when I go to Render>export
I only get a static scene.  Is there a way to get the animated povray file?  If
so, please explain.

Thank you for the help.  Have a great new year everybody.

No, you can't export the animation.

The Plugin handles the animation, and changes the value so it's on 
moray-side and not on povray-side. It's not done the povray-way with the 
clock-variable but the values are changed directly.

Sorry, for the answer but thats the way it is. You could, if you are 
willing to spend the time, rewrite the animation in the exported 
pov-file. This could be useful if you have a large scene with limited 
animated objects. But i see no way to export the animation.

I've done the latter a lot - there's a couple of plugins that let you export 
blocks of script, and I put most of the clock logic in there.  This allows 
me to edit the scene visually for the most part, and then export the 
animation.

Of course, scrubbing doesn't work with this method :(
