There are huge possibilities and functions in the Material Room I found out. 
However, I suspect that many of those possibilities are proprietary to Poser 
in the sense that I have not the slightest idea if, and if yes, how, these 
functions are translated in Poseray towards POV-Ray. That would be for 
FlyerX to answer. Most of this particular information is embedded in the pz3 
or pzz file, and used in combination with the obj and mat files to generate 
the POV-Ray files.

Remember what FlyerX answered to my comment on this in p.b.i.:

I agree. Would be nice if Poser could bake and export its procedural
textures. This and strand hair are features that makes Poser less
portable to other applications.
