I just found this message now. Recently I installed all my toolbox under Windows
10, including POVRay. I can use versions as old as 3.1. I had the same bug of
POVRay "freezing" when it starts the render. I found some workarounds :
- start POVRay in 256-color compatibility mode. When it starts, the splash
screen looks weird and upside down but it works.
- When POVRay is not maximized, uncheck in the Editor menu "Auto-Show Parse
The problem comes from the message window. It seems to have some
incompatibilities with Windows 10.
When I use POVRay 3.1 or 3.5 in maximized mode, I can still check messages using
the dedicated message window during render without freezing. When it's not
maximized, any message that comes up freezes POV-Ray.
So when export from Moray, be sure POVRay is maximized. At least it works for
Hope it helps.
