Sounds like there's some confusion somewhere. You can render the scene in OpenGL
*OR* in POV-ray, but not both at the same time. In POV-ray, you would use
radiosity for that (along with a surrounding dome or sphere that has your
sky(?)image on it, to supply the 'global illumination')-- assuming that your
scene can be re-written in POV-ray's scene description language, as a first
step.
