[Chimera-users] Rendering solid objects and POVRAY

This is a limitation. The solid style volume display is not exported
by Chimera to povray. I think povray supports volumetric rendering
but we do not export the needed data.
I don't know if povray would be able to lessen the pixelation
artifacts. They come from the volume data voxel size. You could
minimize those artifacts by resampling your volume on a finer grid,
displaying in Chimera, and using the non-povray Chimera image save.
Here is some info about how to do that resampling in Chimera
Those instructions talk about resampling on a rotated grid, but you can
just leave the grid unrotated.
