Description

This script creates fancy figures by introducing a focal blur to the image. The object at the origin will be in focus.

Usage

Load the script using the run command. Execute the script using PyMOL syntax:

FocalBlur aperture=2.0,samples=100,ray=1

or using python syntax:

FocalBlur(aperture=2.0,samples=100,ray=1)


For additional options, see the script comments.

Notes

  • When using raytracing, the image creation will take n times longer than normal, where n is the number of samples.
  • ImageMagick is required for the script to work.
  • The aperture is a purely arbitrary value and not related to f stops on a camera.
  • There is a bug preventing custom image sizes when not using raytracing.

Examples

Script

Load the script using the run command

from pymol import cmd
from os import system
from tempfile import mkdtemp
from shutil import rmtree
from math import sin,cos,pi,sqrt
