Overview

Transparency is used to adjust the transparency of Surfaces.

Usage

set transparency, F, selection

where F is a floating point number in the range [0.0 - 1.0], where selection is the selected surface to apply the change to (for examples, see below).

For the value of F, 1.0 will be an invisible and 0.0 a completely solid surface.


Examples

Whole Surface

Change the transparency of the whole surface to 50%.

# show all surfaces with 50% transparency.
set transparency, 0.5


Selected Surface Elements

Simple example showing how to do partial surface transparency

# load a random protein
fetch 1rty

# set the partial transparency for the selected residues
set transparency, 0.65, i. 1-100
