3.2.7.13 For Those Who use an Image Output Directory

Some users have POV-Ray set up such that all images are written into the same output directory. To make this work with I/O Restrictions active, and assuming the output directory isn't in the POV-Ray for Windows installation tree, you will need to add that directory to the permitted output list.

For example, if your image output directory is c:\images\, you could have something like this in the INI file -

[Permitted Input Paths]
1=%INSTALLDIR%

[Permitted Output Paths]
1=%INSTALLDIR%
2=c:\images

If you want to grant access to an entire drive (e.g. d:\), just add it like this -

[Permitted Input Paths]
1=%INSTALLDIR%

[Permitted Output Paths]
1=%INSTALLDIR%
2=c:\images
3=d:\
