Wings3D and Silo can do that :-)

Yes, in particular the SDL. Different camera types for instance...
The coordinate system is not too much a problem and easily circumvented.
However, for a modeller that dedicates itself to POV-Ray, I do not really
understand. Sometimes in the prehistory, I dimly recall that Lutz explained
why, but I cannot remember...

Otherwise, I must say that I am quite happy with Moray as it enables rapid
building of awkward scenes with difficult camera positions for instance.
Much faster then, than the trial and error you have to do in POV-Ray.
