Hi I am a newbie trying to use povray for rendering images of molecules. I
use Swiss PDB viewer to create a .pov file which I then try to render in
povray 3.6 (mac osX 10.3.6).
I have solved some issues regarding the program not finding the path to the
input file etc. by reading earlier threds on the forum.

However, when i now try to render the messeage I get is:

Parsing Options
  Input file: Macintosh HD:Users:tkallelundgren:Desktop:o (compatible to
version 3.60)
  Remove bounds........On   Split unions.........On
  Library paths:

    Macintosh HD:Library:

  Render Time:   0 hours  0 minutes  1 seconds (1 seconds)
  Total Time:    0 hours  0 minutes  1 seconds (1 seconds)

I understand from reading the instructions that I am limited to using a

understand how to get around this problem... What shall i Type to prevent
this from happening?

The include files are:

#include "colors.inc" (this is line 13)
#include "textures.inc"

and further down:

#include "Macintosh HD:Users:tkallelundgren:Desktop:o"

I am grateful for any tips,

All the best,

This is not a Mac specific question. You are recursively including the same
file, which does not make sense and cannot work. Likely you will need to
explain what you are trying to do in order for someone to help you.
