To overlay a 2D line over a 2D image and (as you said later in this
thread) not wanting shadows suggests you have the wrong tool for the
job. POV-Ray is a 3D rendering software, and not really suitable for 2D
image composition. The best way to manipulate 2D images in a
programmatic way is probably ImageMagick, which is open source and
freely available at https://imagemagick.org/
