povray in renderer choices

Post by worldwins »

I've just installed 2.5 alpha2 and also povray 3.7 and then tried to render the basic cube. No go. Since povray is in the menu of choices, how do I connect the povray executable to blender so I can use it?

Well, all you have to do is install povray, install python and the renderer should work.

I installed blender 2.53 beta and povray (i just dragged into my apps folder) under MACOS 10.6 and nothing happens...

Am I missing something? THNKS!

python returns:

POVRAY: could not execute 'povray', possibly povray isn't installed
Traceback (most recent call last):
