Converting SUN to RAD

The SUN format is part of a group called Sun Raster Images, also including RAST, RAS, SR and SCR. All were designed by Sun Microsystems for its UNIX workstations and might not be compatible with other platforms. SUN images can be black-and-white or colored, including several types of color depths.

The RAD format is supported by a ray tracing application called Radiance, which contains several tools that support lighting simulation and measuring light levels. RAD files are often used in architectural project to design and evaluate lighting systems. Apart from lighting features, they can also save objects and materials, and they serve as input for OCT files that facilitate the scene rendering.
