Using Povray to display particles

I was wondering how I use the position files to get povray to give me a movie. I've never really used it before, so I am unsure of how it works.

Re: Using Povray to display particles

Look at the project description file midtermDEM.pdf in the provided resources. It says where to download Pov-Ray and how to run it. It should be set up, the only thing to check is the path to the data files:
#declare vertex_file = concat("stateData/pos", str(1*frame_number,-4,0), ".dat")

If you changed the output directory, you should make this match.

The output will be a sequence of images. To make a video look for the free program VirtualDub. Ask here if you have more specific questions.
