The perp_maker.py script creates perpendicular planes.
Nothing to do with cops. Given a simple PyMol scene, attempts to create a CGO background triangle perpendicular to the vector created - which is parallel to the line segment drawn through the camera point and current center of mass - as obtained by "get_position," or "get_view."
- Load your scene
- Orient the scene as you wish
- Run the script
Could it be any simpler?
You can rotate and move the plane using the editing features (A > drag, Shift+Drag with right, middle or left mouse button).
