Ray

ray creates a ray-traced image of the current frame.
Varying settings to play with rendering options

Details

This command is used to make high-resolution photos fit for publication and formal movies. Please note, the ray command can take some time (up to several minutes, depending on image complexity and size).

For those who are making movies with PyMOL, Ray is one of the most commonly used last steps before stitching the frames together to compile the movie. Ray has many powerful features such as setting the size of the image -- and it still works even if the Viewport or screen is smaller than the requested output file dimensions.
