Thanks for responding!
OH! I found the problem. When you asked what the error message said.. the only
place I was looking was the box that popped up saying "POV-Ray Error Message
Sound" but then I didn't realize there was text at the very bottom of the screen
too, saying "Failed to start render: Cannot open file."
I realize it can't open the file because the file doesn't exist - I didn't save
it. I just typed in the code, clicked "Run" and clicked "No" when it asked to
save because I thought I didn't want to save it yet. I didn't realize you HAVE
to save it as a file in order to render the image. OOPS! :) Thanks for making me
observe extra carefully.
The version I have is 3.6, downloaded from www.povray.org. I don't see any other
versions available there except a "Beta of POV-Ray 3.7" but I'm not sure what it
means to be a beta version. Which one is better for a beginner?
