Pov4Grasp: a patch version of POV-Ray
with direct support for GRASP molecular surface files

      Pov4Grasp is a modified version of POV-Ray (a.k.a povray) running on UNIX & Linux architectures. It is mostly designed to read GRASP surface files (.srf) in their native SGI format for high-quality rendering of fully-textured molecular surfaces, just as any standard POV-Ray object. Its advantages over the official version are fast data parsing and great memory saving, especially when producing pictures and CG animations of huge molecular surfaces. For comparison, a simple GRASP to POV-Ray conversion utility (grasp2pov console tool) is also provided here, now with MegaPOV support. Source code is available for both softwares.
