Introduction

This is an attempt at using Blender, an open-source, free, 3D modeling software to render, pose and animate objects exported from Pymol.

Blender may be downloaded freely for all major platforms (Win/Mac/Linux), from: http://www.blender.org/download/get-blender/

A great starting place for getting comfortable with Blender is the Blender Wiki: http://wiki.blender.org/

These tutorials are for Windows.

Tutorials

Representative examples. Please change/improve.

1. Importing a PyMol Structure into Blender

2. Translucent Surfaces

High quality translucent surfaces, better than PyMOL's internal renderer/ray-tracer.

3. Joining Atoms
