[PyMOL] use of “ray_trace_mode”

I do like a command called “ray_trace_mode” in PyMOL because different modes can generate different light and color effects on the structure I want to express to readers/students. Here is a quick examples of the effect on different modes.

The structure I use at here is LolA which PDB code is 1UA8.

1. ray_trace_mode 0 ( at pymol terminal, type “set ray_trace_mode 0”)

2. ray_trace_mode 1 ( at pymol terminal, type “set ray_trace_mode 1”)

3. ray_trace_mode 2 ( at pymol terminal, type “set ray_trace_mode 2”)

4. ray_trace_mode 3 ( at pymol terminal, type “set ray_trace_mode 3”)

5. ray_trace_mode 4 ( at pymol terminal, type “set ray_trace_mode 4”)

  2. #For version 0.99 (if anybody else still uses that version) the command is:
    set ray_trace_mode, 1
