I don't have a solution to your finder problem but I thought a work around could
be to render your 2000 images as if it was an animation. Then you would launch
only one instance of Pov-ray (I think, not completely sure actually how it works
on Mac). Yet, I don't know if you could easily change your
script to render the appropriate image based on the clock variable...
