All these images were produced with the POV-Ray interface in Ortep-3 for Windows, and show some of it's possibilities. Minor editing of some of the POV-Ray scene description files was necessary to get the illustration shown.

|Unit cell packing diagram with space-filled atoms.
|ORTEP view of [15-crown-5] Na(hfac) showing cut-out ellipses.
|The obligatory picture of C60.
|ORTEP view of a napthoquinone structure with mouse-positioned atom labels.
|The adp's of Rh4(CO)12 shown as the RMSD surface (PEANUT plot).
|Fancy POV-Ray effects - a sky background and a metallic finish to those thermal ellipsoids.
|Same as above but shown as the MSD surface. This 6-order polynomial surface is poorly rendered by POV-Ray (notice the strange but interesting drop-outs !)
|Rh4(CO)12 again, shown as a rod representation.
|A GIF-animation of Rh4(CO)12. A program to create the animation (e.g. Animation Shop) is required.
|Ball and stick unit cell packing diagram with checked background.
|Spacefill view of CuCl2L macrocyclic complex with fancy textures.
|View down the 001 surface of silica
