This script selects those atoms that are between the near and far clipping plane.

Usage

select_clipped [name [, selection [, state]]]

The Code

from pymol import cmd

def clipped_by(at,v):
   x,y,z = at.coord
   nz = v[2]*(x-v[12])+v[5]*(y-v[13])+v[8]*(z-v[14])-v[11]
   return nz > v[15] and nz < v[16]

def clipped(selection="all",state=1):
   v = cmd.get_view()
   return [ i.id for i in cmd.get_model(selection,state).atom if clipped_by(i,v) ]

def select_clipped(name='clipped', selection='all', state=1):
    '''
DESCRIPTION

    Select atoms between clipping planes

USAGE

    select_clipped [name [, selection [, state]]]
    '''
    state = int(state)
    cmd.select(name, 'none')
    for model in cmd.get_object_list('(' + selection + ')'):
        cmd.select_list('__tmp', model, clipped('(%s) and (%s)' % (model, selection), state))
        cmd.select(name, '__tmp', merge=1)
    cmd.delete('__tmp')

cmd.extend('select_clipped', select_clipped)

To use this script save it to "clipped.py". Then load the script from PyMOL ("run clipped.py").

Example

# for example, fetch 1cll

fetch 1cll, async=0

# orient it to clip out some data
