materials.inc

Something odd is happening, I am using the animator, and I havent changed any options, but when I try to render something using povray, I get an error about not being able to find "materials.inc". The only thing different between now and when it worked (using the same scene even), is I modified the code for a light source in the edit window to make it a spotlight. Other than that, nothing has changed.

I am using the latest stable povray, and it looks like it doesnt come with a materials.inc

Have you changed your POV-Ray version?

It could be two things: Either it can't find materials.inc - in this case, try to locate it on your disk and include it with an absolute path.

On the other hand: Maybe there's something wrong in the POV-Ray code of your lightsource that confuses povray (and makes it print an obviously "wrong" error). Try to render the pov-ray file manually and double-check your lightsource code.
