Hello,

I currently use Chief Architect X7 Premier and would like to incorporate POV RAY
to perform various scene renderings.  Can anyone guide me with the steps to do
this. I would really appreciate it!

Much Thanks,
Dulcie Alexis

   Just tested a few days ago that this still works with X7: another CA 
X7 user sent me the files and I could render them using my old X1 
tutorial. The only glitch was that the exported files seem to have a 
different coordinate system, and you may have to swap the Y and Z axes. 
Try it and let me know if you have specific problems...

   Regards,

This sounds like a right-handed coordinate system like Moray. If that is 
correct, and also the mirroring effect is there, a little transform code 
can be added to the objects after export to POV-Ray :

   scale <1, 1, -1>
   rotate 90*x

This is actually a lot of work for a very simple operation. All you really need
to do is negate the right vector in the camera, thusly:

camera {
    perspective
    location POS
    up y
    right -x*(image_height/image_width)
    look_at TGT
}

where POS and TGT are the position and focal points.  Make sure your camera is
pointed in the -z direction, and presto-chango: right-handed coords.
