POV-ray and POvanim help!!

After exporting my blend file with sudivison support using POVanim I get a problem in this part of POVray:

//Mesh2 number: 5
#declare Plane_064 = mesh2 {
subdivision { substeps 4} <this is the problem line!!
vertex_vectors{ #include “E:\SUBANIM\MESH2\MotobikeArayPlane_064verts.inc”}
normal_vectors{ #include “E:\SUBANIM\MESH2\MotobikeArayPlane_064norm.inc”}
face_indices{ #include “E:\SUBANIM\MESH2\MotobikeArayPlane_064faces.inc”}
normal_indices{ #include “E:\SUBANIM\MESH2\MotobikeArayPlane_064nindice.inc”}

Then in messages it says:
#declare Plane_064 = mesh2 {
subdivision
Parse Error: Vertex vectors not found in mesh2

(Oh yeah using latest POV-RAy,ROVanim versions and blender 2.34)
much help would be appriciated.

1/ are you using sub-pov patched engine or pov-ray original engine ?
2/ are you using the “Motobike.ini” file or the “Motobike.pov” file ?

( note :
"}subdivision { substeps 4} <this is the problem line!! "
/\ this “}” this seems to be an error too. )

1/ Yes, I am using sub-pov patched engine.
2/ I am using “Motobike.pov”

yeah about the the ’ } ’ that was an accident when typing this post, its not in the script.

So the solution is … : “use Motobike.ini”
:wink:

oh…lol, thx

Could we see the rendered image ?

ok this is blender scanline render, il post the POVray export in 15 minutes

This is the POV ray version, no fancy lighting yet, oh yeah couldn’t get the subdivision line to work either,anyway here is a ugly square render :o

Pay attention to the fact that (for the moment and there is good reasons for
this ) povanim exports the diffrence between the GL subdiv value and the
render subdiv value .

(but where are the shadows ?)

ah, this link is proving to be very helpful, soz but I am n00b when it comes to all things ‘script’, I havent added any shadow lights yet, i’ll report back in 4 days time with the result, i’m very busy at the moment so you will have to exuse me. YafRay couldn’t even render 1% of this scene in 18 hours, but in POV ray it takes just 1 min!!! :smiley: .(ah…hmm…this Sub patch has eluded me, I will install it as instructed and give you the result like I said in 4 days time)
