How do I produce high-resolution, high-impact images using Mercury?


Mercury provides an intuitive option for ray-traced image rendering, which results in high quality graphics that are ideal for presentations, publications, posters and reports. To generate images, go to File in the top-level menu and choose POV-Ray Image... then select your preferred image output dimensions and click on Render.

Recommended settings for high quality images are images dimensions of width 1024 pixels by height 768 pixels or higher and a file format of PNG.
