Just write a script that loops over all frames and uses the render command. Details are in the user's guide. Axel.

Subject: vmd-l: Writing povray files from a VMD trajectory
Sent: Apr 9, 2013 9:32 PM

Dear VMD Listserve,

I tried searching the archive but came up empty. I would like to take a
trajectory in VMD and dump only the povray scene files; i.e. I do not
want VMD to render them. Is there a straightforward way to do this? Any
insight would be appreciated. I apologize if this has been addressed
previously and I was simply unable to locate it in the archive.

Thanks a million, and have a great day!
