Absolutely.  We have used povray in the standard universe (with remote system calls, checkpointing).  For demos in years gone by, we have also written scripts that can take a povray still or animation, partition it into an arbitrary number of jobs (tiling if it is a still), and submit to condor.

We have done that as well is past demos, no problems I can recall...
