Raster3D is a set of powerful tools for generating high quality raster images of proteins or other molecules. The core program renders spheres, triangles, cylinders, and quadric surfaces with specular highlighting, Phong shading, and shadowing. It uses an efficient software Z-buffer algorithm that is independent of any graphics hardware.

Release Notes: Minor bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds gfortran support. Makefiles have been massaged to handle gfortran-specific issues. Initialization of variables has been fixed. The label3d module has been modified due to changes in ImageMagick 6+. Patches have been applied for Debian support.
Release Notes: The default image output of all programs is now PNG. Linux RPM generation was reorganized, and a Makefile option was included for the sun-forte compiler. The label3d and stereo3d scripts were updated to accommodate multiple versions of ImageMagick and ghostscript. This release was tested on Alpha / OSF 4.0 / Tru64 5.1, SGI Irix 6.2 and 6.5, IBM RS6000/AIX, SUNOS (g77/gcc), and x86 (Intel, AMD) Linux (Mandrake 8.1, 9.0, 9.2) (g77/pgf77).
