Hi,

I am developing some scientific scene for a number of commercial
palaeontological publications, and used POV-Ray for a number of elements
in that scene.

I would like to add to the scene legal statement the name POV-Ray 3.7"
as indication that POV-Ray was used and as promotion of course. It would
then look this way:

Copyright:
(scientist's name)
Illustration:
Sven Littkowski
POV-Ray 3.7

Would that be okay legally with the POV-Ray team?

I'd go for :
Rendered with POV-Ray 3.7

Many have done just that.

Thanks. But just parts of the entire scene were been rendered. But okay.

UPDATE
The partially POV-Ray rendered image will be on the FRONT of the
magazine, too!!! And they also will publish a few words about POV-Ray
inside that scientific magazine!

Any image from scenes that you created are yours. The tools used can't 
impose copyright restrictions, even if the tool say otherwise. It's your 
work, not that of the tool used.

I'm not sure that's universally true; in some countries, license
agreements can do a lot of stuff. But it would be rare in practice.
