Povray script error

Ok I have Povray installed correctly and I have Python Installed correctly. When I downloaded Blender 2.40 there was an export already integrated into the export panel. I have a pic here to prove it.

And here is a pic of the error I get if I manually run the script.
PovError

Please help, I am in dire need of it, I can’t figure out what the heck is up with it.
Thanks,
Jimmy

So, did you look in the Console? What did it say?

As Povanim is not a gpl script it should not be in this list .

I have a pic here to prove it.

Look at the Povanim’s Elysiun page :
https://blenderartists.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13786
And, if you can, try to post in this thread .

WEll as you can tell by my evidence, it is in there. I’ve tried mulitple pov scripts but none work. Strange anomoly :-?

But you can’t find this script in the official release .

I suppose that it exports correctly now if you can try the “.pov” scripts. Did you read this part of the doc ?

lol they’re not “.pov” scripts just different versions of a povray export script, sorry i did’nt make myself clearer :expressionless: . I’ve used Povray to render things before but the actual script does not run because of some error.

But you can’t find this script in the official release.

Well as THIS screenshot says, it sure is in there, just like the other export scripts, I’d never installed the script or anything though. It’s just there, maybe Blender went snooping around my computer and found it, but it has never been installed.

Now my question is, why am i getting an error and how can I fix it? I know how to use Povray to render things, cause I’ve done it before without any problems.

This version can not work with blender 2.40 . You have to delete lanc_povanimpy and povanim237_xxpy (xx for ‘01’ or ‘02a’) . You should find these two files in the “.blender/scripts” folder .

When they will be correctly erased, replace them by the good ones : povanim239_01.py and lanc_povanim239.py . You can find these files in the archive file povanim239_01.zip, at this address:https://blenderartists.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13786

Hey thanks a million jms, that did the trick. Kinda strange, but I had already downloaded the script you said I should use, but it did’nt work when I launched it manualy. So I replaced the one that was already installed in the export panel with the new one and it worked, why it did’nt work when I launched it from the text window, I don’t know, but replacing the old one did the trick, thanks agian.
