Stereo ray

Type Python Script
Author(s) Jason Vertrees
License -
This code has been put under version control in the project Pymol-script-repo

This scripts provides the stereo_ray command, which saves two ray traced images in PNG format. The left image is rotated +3 degrees and the right image is rotated -3 degrees.

Note that the end result is almost identical to using "walleye" stereo mode, which might be more convenient and is readily available in PyMOL.


stereo_ray filename [, width [, height ]]


import stereo_ray 
stereo_ray output, 1000, 600

This will create two images, "output_l.png" and "output_r.png". Just paste the two images next to each other (in some image editing program) and you're done.
