Type Python Module
Author(s) Jason Vertrees and Thomas Holder
License BSD-2-Clause
This code has been put under version control in the project Pymol-script-repo

This script will help fade in and out settings in a movie. Just specify the setting, it's initial value at an initial frame and it's ending value and frame.


movie_fade setting, startFrame, startVal, endFrame, endVal [, selection ]


To fade in sticks from fully transparent to fully opaque across 60 frames do:

mset 1x60
movie_fade stick_transparency, 1, 1., 60, 0.

More complex example which involves camera motion:

fetch 1rx1, async=0
as cartoon
show surface
mset 1x80
movie_fade transparency,  1, 0., 40, 1.
movie_fade transparency, 41, 1., 80, 0.

Example file:


<source lang="python"> import movie_fade

fetch 1hpv, async=0 orient
