POV-Ray™ setup

LDD to POV-Ray™ Converter requires at least POV-Ray 3.7 (RC3, RC5, RC6 or RC7 is also supported). Download it from POV-Ray™ homepage.

Follow the POV-Ray™ installation instructions to install it.

Before rendering the scene in POV-Ray™ it is necessary to add the string \\.\LDDIncludes into POV-Ray™ library path.

It can be done in two ways:

  • by modifying povray.ini file (preffered way)
  • by adding the +L switch to command line

To modify povray.ini file:

  1. From the POV-Ray™ main menu select Tools and click on Edit master POVRAY.INI.
  2. Locate existing Library_Path strings. If there is no existing Library_Path setting in the file, go to the end of the file. Add new line containing Library_Path="\\.\LDDIncludes". Including quotes.

To add +L switch to command line enter +L"\\.\LDDIncludes" into command line text box bellow toolbar next to the resolution selection combobox in POV-Ray™ main window.
