Maybe you could elaborate a bit on the workflow you are using, as I
don't think I completely understand what exactly you are doing.
(If you're struggling to explain it in English, feel free to explain it
in German instead.)

The only part I do understand is that you're using some other scripting
language (which one? I don't recognize it) to generate snippets of
POV-Ray scene code (how are they passed to POV-Ray itself?).

My first guess is that POV-Ray's `#include` statement is the key to
whatever you're trying to do.
