Hello,

How do you call povray to render in a PictureBox from c# in the way that  
Moray does?

Is this a matter of something like this (Then loading the output image  
into the PictureBox):
Process myProc = new Process();
myProc.StartInfo.Filename = "dir\abc.exe";
myProc.StartInfo.Arguments = "file1, file2, file3";
myProc.Start();

Or is there any api documentation (or code sample in any language) someone  
can point me to?

Thanks!

Yes: The Moray code :-P

There is a plug-in API for POV-Ray, which allows you to plug-in other 
software (like Moray) into POV-Ray. There must be some kind of 
documentation /somewhere/ on the web pages.

You may also want to look for 'GUI Extension'.

Oh...so that is open source now? Well...damn..I had no idea and will have  
to look around for the source repository then..wherever that is..

Ok..I'll look for that then. Is that on the main pov site?
Keep in mind I do not have just all of the time in the world to look this  
stuff up..I am a very busy person..so please forgive me if I ask questions  
that may be answered "easily" if I were to have more of that precious  
resource.. ;)

Very good then..I will look for that in Google too.

Failing my finding anything I can use there, I will just initiate a new  
command-line process and pass the requisite variables, then load the  
output to the picturebox...though that is a horribly kludgey solution. :|

This does seem to come up every so often. There should be a FAQ. (Maybe there
is. I'll look after I post this.) Anyway, here are a couple of earlier
references.

Good luck.
