Hello,

I have recently started using POV-Ray for making illustrations/schematics for a
material science research article. The figures came out really well. Thanks to
POV-Ray developers.

I wonder if there is a way to insert mathematical expressions as text into the
figure (example: say latex symbols $\alpha + \beta = 0$) directly into the scene
file or do I have to render the image in POV-Ray, save it to .png and later cut
and paste latex equations into the .png file ?

Thank you,
