  [Q] POV-Ray in command line

I use POV-Ray in command line under macOS Catalina and Macports,
and run it about 2000 times, in order to render 2000 images. My
issue is when you launch `povray` in command line, it opens a
menu bar, and displays an icon in the macOS dock ...

Is there a command line option, that prevents POV-Ray from displaying
a menu bar and an icon in the dock ? Because when you launch it 2000
times, for 2000 images, the Apple Finder and the Macintosh become
unusable ... The computer keeps displaying the bar and the icon,
and you can't do anything else with the Macintosh. You have to wait
that the 2000 images are rendered ... You have to wait half an hour,
so that POV-Ray stops rendering.

There must be a solution. Because you can't do anything else, before
POV-Ray has stopped rendering ... This is very painful ...

Thanks for any help.

Best regards,
