That is news to us.  The chimera povray output was only tested with the 
POV-Ray 3.6.1 renderer that comes with chimera.  Please submit a bug 
report using chimera's Help / Report a Bug dialog and include the name and 
version number of the other POV-ray renderers, as well as the error 
message you get.
