is an export script project (to
discover what are python script) for "mesh" objects,
oriented to regular users of :
- full power of povray
using a ".ini" file instead of the ".pov" : file structures
are clearer (you can modify the camera file, for instance, without
editing 2 megaoctets of vertex data) and the data use less space
take into account the modifications made by animation tools such
to preserve some data like localisation, rotation and size, whereas
scripts only export matrixes...or nothing at all.
possibilities above mentioned are exclusively reserved to
2.23 and later.
So Povanim can not be used with another older version of this
- Relative Vertex Keys
- Vertex Parenting works too
- to export
the vertex colors assigned with the Blender vertex
tool blender with uvmapping texture or not
- to choose
the type of exportation :
- to avoid having
to install the full python language on the workstation because Povanim
works with the python library delivered with Blender.
- MegaPov 0.7 or 1.0 or 1.1
to work under:
- to detect
of camera or version, and to notify them returning an error message in
the console. <>-
uvmapping , available from the 10d version, and without any

having to adjust the script (in fact under all posix compatible
