MolPOV manufacturer description

Molecular graphics are an integral part of modern chemistry. Visualization of molecular structures adds impact to presentations, textbooks, articles, and classroom teaching. MolPOV 2.1 allows one to render photorealistic models of molecules in the spacefilling ("CPK"), ball and stick, or cylinders formats. Early modeling of molecular structure as Van der Waals surfaces were based on the CPK plastic models, which were a basic tool for visualizing the steric aspects of molecules. When computer graphics entered chemistry in a big way, the plastic models went the way of the dinosaur. (One could argue that this is a step backward, because holding and manipulating a molecular structure can lead to useful insights about reactivity and conformations that can`t be obtained from a 2D picture... but that problem isn`t solved here or anywhere yet.)
Molecular computer graphics improved quickly, but rendering by current commercial packages is really quite abstract. Typically, spacefill pictures of molecules produced by these programs have a limited amount of depth, and realistic details of shadowing and surface texture are absent. In addition, backgrounds are usually black and featureless. The displayed molecules do not have the visual impact of even the plastic CPK models of yesterday. Modern computer 3-D graphics are of course capable of much more. However, as picture quality increases, rendering time does, too. This means that photorealistic molecules can`t be rotated and viewed as quickly as a primitively rendered structure can. Thus, software producers have pretty much ignored the final output issue, and even the best quality graphical output is pretty lousy.
