Yes, Raster3D can certainly make spectacular pictures.  The problem I
have with it is labelling.  We have used Molscript --> Raster3D and then 
to an ESV display program (whose name I have forgotten) to display images.

The problem is labelling.  The documentation we have specifically says
that labels don't get transferred by Raster3D -- and they don't.  The
last colour figure we made this way where we needed labels, we hand-
labelled using letraset.  This is _not_ a good solution!  Does anyone
have any better ideas? (I'd prefer responses by email, as I dip into
this newsgroup only occasionally.)
