The output of povray is a graphics file which is the result of its 
calculations.  The input is a script of POV-Ray SDL (Scene Description 
Language).

That is it.

Now, POV-Ray can be coerced to into outputting several graphics file. 
This is accomplished by basically POV-Ray calling itself once for each 
frame, or graphics file outputted.

It starts over at the beginning of your SDL script for each and every 
frame output.

A for loop is the wrong paradigm (the SDL does not control which 
graphics files are output).

If you are using POV-Ray for Windows or qtpovray, the include menu 
contains two samples under the Animation sub-menu which will build 
complete scenes.  Start with "animation 1".
