I'm one of the developers for the Blender 2.5x to POV-Ray 3.7 exporter.

1. One of our targets is to have a nice working POV-Ray exporter for the final
POV-Ray 3.7 - for that we could need your help as testers.

The newest exporter requires Blender 2.56 r34318 or later!
That is much newer than the last official Blender 2.56a version from
To get the newest Blender you can get one at http://www.graphicall.org/builds/
or build your own out of the sources from http://www.blender.org
Builds from today will have the latest exporter.

The newes exporter can also downloaded here (req. Blender 2.56 r34318 or later):

The scripts are palced in (BlenderDir)/2.56/scripts/addons/render_povray/

Please report any bugs here or as a comment in the bug tracker from Blender:

2. How to use the exporter and the current features can be found here:
(Wiki is also "Work in progress")
Do you have any hints for the wiki or feature requests for the exporter? Please
answer here or in the comments of the bug tacker.
Are the links to the POV-Ray Wiki the best ones? I would prefer a little bit
shorter discription for "command line switches" than the one I'm linking to.

3. Would it be possible to create an own area for blender, under Newsgroups ->
POV-Ray Tools -> Blender ?

4. Is there a way to get the rendered image from POV-Ray back to Blender without
using an image on HD?

Greetings and happy Blending,
