  Moray 3.5 won't render changes to scene (Message 1 to 5 of 5)

I have Moray 3.5 with POVRay 3.5 on Windows XP. I have a simple scene 
where I have a hollow cylindar pieced by some other solid cylindars to 
make holes. The main cylindar is a CSG object with all the other 
cylindars subtracted (differenced) from the main cylindar. 

However, when I change the material for the main cylindar, and click the 
Moray button for Render, POV starts, but renders an older version of the 
scene. 

When I open the POV file generated by Moray and render it in POV, I also 
get the old scene. So Moray is clearly not updating the POV file. 

This is unregistered Moray. Does anyone know how to fix this? 

I tried restarting Moray and POV at the same time, and still have the 
problem. 

Thanks.

Hi A
 Iím not being funny but have you checked that you are changing the material
that is allocated to your cylinder and not one with a similar name?
Iíve been caught out by making this mistake.

Yes I have. I changed the material for the CSG object, for the main 
cylindar, and all the hole cylindars. Moray refuses to update the POV 
file before the image is rendered by POV. 

I have even clicked ^S to save the Moray file, and done Tools, Reset POV 
Communications before I click the Moray render button.

If you have a simple scene why not post it in moray.binaries so someone can
look at it directly.

Just a few thoughts about your problem.

In addition to what Stephen proposes, have you controlled the Preferences in 
View|Preferences window to see where your file is being saved to? Can you 
find a saved .mdl or .pov and .inc files appearing in another folder? 
Because it looks like Moray saves and reads to/from different folders. 
Control also your Search Paths (also in Preferences).

Then, control also the settings in the Render|Render Options window to check 
to what folder the .pov and .inc files are saved to.

Hope this helps...

Thomas
