From PyMOLWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Background

  • Naming
    • All listed colours can be specified by name (eg color red, mymolecule)
    • American and English spellings of gray/grey and color/colour can be used
  • Sources
    • Pymol colours are specified as triples of independent Red, Green and Blue contribution in range 0-1.0 in square brackets (e.g. [1.0,1.0,1.0] for white)
    • Colour specs from source files Color.c, menu.py and appearance.py of Pymol 0.99 beta29
    • Colour names can be defined/redefined using set_color command or interactively in Colors item within Setting menu

Spectral range colours

Spectral ranges are available by name including numerical value (eg grey56, s532)

  • Grays from 'gray00' to 'gray99' (white to black)
  • Spectrum from 's000' to 's999' (violet to red)
  • Original spectrum with extra blue and red at ends from 'o000' to 'o999'
  • Reversed offset spectrum from 'r000' to 'r999'
  • Complementary spectrum from 'c000' to 'c999'
  • Complementary spectrum separated by white from 'w000' to 'w999'

See Colour.c in source code for details about how spectra are calculated
