there's no direct import of .obj format files in "stock" POV-Ray.

to get you started, hope you'll "find your feet":

<https://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Tutorial_Section_2#Getting_Started>
<https://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Tutorial_Section_3.8#SDL_tutorial:_A_raytracer>

the wiki always has the most up-to-date "official" documentation.


regards, jr.
