Molecular visualization software?

    Molecular visualization software??

    Hello,

    I have recently started working in the feild of biophysics and I need to produce some visualizations (pictures and movies) for the molecular coordinates that are produced by my simulation code. I am looking for visualization solutions for 1D, 2D, and 3D and I need these visualization softwares to work on both Linux and Mac OSX.

    I am mainly looking for shareware or freeware solutions because the updating of liscences over the years can become a real pain. Some of the software packages I have already looked at are: VMD (visual molecular dynamics), ImageJ, and LASSP Tools.

    I am just wondering what other software packages there are out there that you guys might be able to direct me to.

    Thanks alot,

    -Phalanx

    I use VMD a lot myself after carrying out a similar "review" few years ago. Had under "free" the following links, perhaps there is something of use (pretty much all my applications have to do with crystalline structures so some of these may not apply that well to biophysics):
