Hi. I tried to run povray on a single thread and for the same purpose I used the
+WT1 option. I observed the following : (Refer image attached for reference)

While the photon time was shown with 4 threads used for processing the trace
time was shown with 1 thread. Searching a bit more, found that +WT option doesnt
control the photon time related threads. I then tried to change the gather
setting in GLOBAL_SETTINGS for photon with min_gather and max_gather set to 1
and tried to check maybe if this leads to only one thread getting used. But got
similar results( i.e 4 threads were displayed along with photon time).

How can we run the povray application completely on a single thread? Kindly
share your thoughts. Thanks
