BUG:
note in JesusLovesYou2_single-frame.ini there is no frame count and no clock.
this should be a single frame.
but it renders consistently as a 9104-frame movie. pov-ray is using a cached
initial_frame and final_frame instead of a default (which should probably be 1
if at all).

Can you try the same without a filename with a "-" ?

It might also be a lack of explicit initialisation, and your render use
whatever is at that place in memory. Can you try on a different system ?
After a reboot ?

It might be platform specific (windows) or not.

Do you have any explanation for 9104 ?

By default, frame number and clock should be 0 when not animated.

OK, I renamed all of them. I selected and ran JesusLovesYou2_single_frame.ini
and I got

Preset INI file is 'D:\WWW\JESUSNJIM\RAYTRACE\JOHN3_16-17.INI'.
Preset source file is
'D:\www\Jesusnjim\raytrace\JesusLovesYou2_single_frame.ini'.
-
Cannot open INI file 'D:\WWW\JESUSNJIM\RAYTRACE\JOHN3_16-17.INI'.
Failed to start render: Failed to parse INI file

so why is it reading the wrong .ini file?

even biscuit won't go. maybe it's time to reboot. been sleeping the win7 machine
for a week.

reboot seems to have fixed it. hmm.

Red alert, use a memory checker (such as memtest86+ or whatever does not
need an OS). Check your whole ram, you might have a bad block.

That, or there is a memory leak/overflow when running your previous scenes.
