When batch converting a Poser (7) series of OBJ files from an animation 
I cannot find a way of including the search paths of the image maps. I 
have to actually copy the image files from the Poser libraries into the 
saved directory.

PoseRay now seems to make a numbered copy of the image file for each 
frame of the animation. Any particular reason why? Also using the 
“Export to PovRay [single file – animation] option the mat.inc files 
calls an image map that has not been created. For instance:
//Map definitions
#declare p_map1=pigment {image_map{jpeg 
"batch_process_object_LDTankTop_RibbedB.jpg" interpolate 2 transmit all 
0 filter all 0} }

but the image map is:
Shorts_Topobj_190_LDTankTop_RibbedB.jpg

Do you have any archived older versions of Poseay?

I just reproduced the bug here. It works properly if you disable copying 
all maps to the target directory. You can use this workaround while a 
new version is available.

I don't think earlier versions worked with animations very well but I 
could email you a link. I do not make previous versions public because I 
will not support them and I have very limited bandwidth.

I forgot. As for the problem of not finding the maps if you follow the 
animation tutorial on the manual it should work.

Thanks FlyerX I’ll try that tonight.

Well I did because I only want the series of inc files and the 
simplicity suited me :). Maybe because I’m using a modeller and not 
setting the scene up in PovRay directly.

I’ll persevere ;) with the current version as it is not a good idea to 
use unsupported s/ware. Thanks.
