Windows 7, and #version 3.7 - F1 Fails !!!!!
I don't know what 3.7 can do, but it's easier to fix the F1
issue by renaming exe files.

two versions povray in this file
#version 3.63 motion blur and stereo camera
#version unofficial megapov 1.21;

uninstall 3.7 -- install 3.6 ( https://www.povray.org/download/index-3.6.php )
place files in bin folder and rename, whichever one youre using, to
pvengine.exe

and it wont put your files in Documents folder or wherever the hell 3.7 puts
them. that sucked, so hated that.

correctly compiled with mingw.

previous was poorly prepared, had to sort archive by date to find latest 3.63,
due to lack of total recall. glow{} IS in both.

two versions povray in this file
#version 3.63 glow{}, motion_Blur{}, stereo camera, Date Time set
#version unofficial megapov 1.21;

megapov help file would not fit 5m limit, so you have to get it, dl megapov.
stereo example, and include files
stereo_equip.inc
megatime.inc

I did remember glow{} being there, memory made me go find it.

again:
uninstall 3.7 -- install 3.6 ( https://www.povray.org/download/index-3.6.php )
place files in bin folder and rename, whichever one youre using, to
pvengine.exe ... or not. can be run as any filename, but other programs call the
known pvengine.exe

Wont put your files in Documents folder;

to make red/blue images, I wanted to include composite.exe, only 188k but that
was when ... now is 3 meg, no dlls. I like that better.

one more idiosyncrasy on glow{}

place cursor on glow, and hit F1,
even if you rename megapov.chm
to povray36.chm = F1 doesnt help you.

use the search tab, search glow, it's under effects.
motion_blur is found with F1.
there is no help entry on stereo. not quite on your own tho.

#declare _stereo_ = 0;   //makes L/R frames
// drop composite.exe in file dir and RUN *3d.ini, not this file
#declare stereo_movie = 0; // set to 1 and RUN *3d_mov.ini
#include "stereo_equip.inc" // edit BATCH FILE maker filenames
camera {
#if (_stereo_)
    stereoscopic
    zeroparallax 90
    eyeseparation 1
#end

}

*3d.ini
Post_Frame_Command="composite -stereo %sR.png %sL.png %sA.png"
 ; Post_Scene_Command="composite -stereo %sR.png %sL.png %sA.png"
Post_Frame_Return=I

(but as of win7 .bat file needs admin priv I suspect)

help files don't compress much
Error: Attachment was too big. Allowed are only up to 5120000 bytes!
it was only 4,222,000 - get it on your own.

example glow
#macro charge(p,col,scl)
   glow { type 0 // type 0 | 1 | 2 | 3
              location p
              color rgb col
              size scl
              fade_power 2.5
   }
#end
