Up: Rendering methods
`Points' draws each atom as a point, and does not draw any of the
bonds. This option is useful when rendering very large molecules
containing millions of atoms, particularly for rendering
water or other structures for which geometric detail may not be necessary.
The Size of the points can be changed. When the VMD rendering
mode is set to GLSL, the Points representation will render
space filling spheres with a size proportional to the Size
parameter, and with performance on par with the non-shaded points
drawn in other rendering modes.
