What version of Chimera are you using? I would probably try a fairly
recent version such as the Feb 11 snapshot
because since the Nov 2007 production release, there have been
lighting changes to improve povray results, and also a bug that
generated "no pigment type" warnings and black areas in povray images
has been fixed.
However, if you are already using a new version, it may be a
different issue, and you could send us more information about the
problem (see Help... Report a Bug in the Chimera menu). That
reporting mechanism will automatically look up what hardware you
have and what version you are using, and will let you attach extra
files if desired.
