Started doing some research on taking Lego Designer Files and rendering them out using POV-Ray for something really nice looking.
Found a really good tutorial here.
What I basically learned is that you need to create your model (with LDD or Brickmaster), export it as an LDD file, import that into LDView, export that scene as a POV, and then use POV-Ray to render it.
What you'll need to also grab are the .inc files needed for POV-Ray with LGEO, which is basically a Lego library for POV-Ray. Interesting stuff!
