ADL: Vina and multiple receptor conformations

While it is extremely convenient and rapid to use vina for molecular
docking on account of its calculation of docking grids automatically (ie
without the use of autogrid as for autodock), sometimes I would find it
useful to have access to the grid maps that are used. For example, I
have used weighted average maps to calculate average affinities for
different ligand atoms across a series of receptor conformations.
In the video tutorial, it is stated that vina uses grid maps that it
calculates itself at the beginning of the runs. I wonder can vina be fed
pre-calculated grid maps (for example, calculated with autogrid) that
have been modified according to the users needs?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
