[Molvis-list] Publication quality?

We would like to start with a view in Protein Explorer (Chime), push a 
button, and produce a publication-quality image. What are the options for 
generating truly publication-quality images from a Chime view? (So, using 
RasMol/Chime/Jmol scripting as a starting point. PE will soon have a 
built-in script recorder, so the command script will be readily available.) 
I'm talking about MolScript/Pov-Ray/Raster3D or PyMol quality, not hi-res 

Does Jmol have any mechanism to export scripts to generate high-quality 
ray-tracing images for publication?

Does RasMol 2.7 have a publication-quality export mechanism? I think RasMol 
2.6 had something but I got the impression it was not very satisfactory (I 
never used it.).

Thanks, -Eric
