Rendering high quality images

Dear lammps user,

Can anybody suggest me a software to render highl quality publishable images from .dump files generated via lammps. I used ovito for the same but journal in which I want to publish is not much satisfied with quality. Please help.

Thanks

Use vmd.
There are many tutorials on their webpage.

Best,

Thank you Sridhar. In vmd, how can I set different values of cutoff radius for different pairs of molecules?

This page lists several viz programs that can
be used with LAMMPS output:

All of them can produce publication quality

images, including OVITO. I suggest you email

the OVITO mail list or developers if you have a Q.

They would be surprised to hear a journal does

not accept it. It’s more likely you are doing something

sub-optimal with OVITO.

you must be doing something very wrong. ovito has an interface to
tachyon, a raytracer which is also used in VMD and which can produce
*extremely* high quality and high resolution images if used properly.
i've used Tachyon in the past to create high quality pictures that
were printed with a 254dpi laser printer on 30"x24" (about DIN A1
size) photographic paper for posters (i.e. at 7620 × 6096 pixes or
46.5MP). that is far beyond what any journal would require, even for
cover images.

apart from that, "quality" is a relative term and can refer to many
things, including choice of color palette and composition of the
images just as much as the technical quality, i.e. resolution and file
format.

Thank you Axel. I will try again. I think image quality goes down while converting word to pdf during script upload. I will sort it out by sending images separately.
