Don't know about MACs but this works on PCs and SGIs:
-------------------------------------------------
Exporting Povray scripts from PyMol
 

The choice of the renderer is defined by the variable "ray_default_renderer". A value of 0 points to the internal renderer, a value of 1 creates a povray file called "tmp_pymol.pov" in the current directory.

To change the setting use:

        cmd.set('ray_default_renderer',1)

Alternatively use this script:

        util.ray_shadows('heavy')
        (header,data) = cmd.get_povray()
        file=open('povray.pov','w')
        file.write(header)
        file.write(data)
        file.close()


Thanks for the original contributors.


Happy PyMOLing
