Complex B&W outline representation What To Type
BW raytraced complex image.jpg
Description
Making a B&W outlined image with depth.


See Also
# first load lipid model
load lipids.pdb; 
# hide the initially loaded representation
hide all; 
# set background color to white
bg_color white; 
# show lipid model as sticks
show sticks, lipids; 
# color the lipids model by element CHNOS #2 (carbon green)
util.cbag lipids; 
 
# select all hydrogens and remove them from the model
select hideme, hydro; 
hide everything, hideme; 
delete hideme;
 
# create phosphate spheres
create phos, elem p; 
hide everything, phos;
show spheres, phos;
 
# load helix model
load helix.pdb; 
# hide the initially loaded representation
hide everything, helix;
# make the helical struct into a cartoon form
show cartoon, helix; 
# style the cartoon form
cartoon putty; 
 
# reposition the helix among the lipids using
# the 3-Button Editing Mouse Mode
# basically
# Shift+Left Mouse to rotate the helix
# Shift+Middle Mouse to move the helix
# also, you may want to make liberal use of the
# get_view and set_view commands.
#
# When you have the scene set like you want,
# continue with...
 
# move the model to find the view you want, 
# and use get_view to get the coordinate description
get_view;
 
# set ray_trace_mode to black and white outline
set ray_trace_mode, 2;
Now, you'll need to save multiple versions of your model. (use ray, then png <filename> to save each version)
  1. Version A: with all the elements except for the helix. This will become the background.
  2. Version B: with the 'front' elements, and the helix. Basically this is just a few 'layers' of lipid, with the helix among them. To do this:
    1. move the model around until you visually see the part to remove
    2. switch your Mouse Mode to 3-button viewing, then use the +Box selection (Shift+Left mouse) to select the 'background' portion to hide.
    3. choose Hide>Everything for the selection
    4. use the code from get_view to go back to the original view
Finally, you will need to compose the image in Photoshop (or Gimp, here I'll use Photoshop).
  1. Load the two versions.
  2. Select the white background in Version B, then choose Select>Color Range...
  3. Make sure 'Select' is set to 'Sampled Colors', and 'Fuzziness' is set to 150, then click okay.
  4. delete the white selection, then choose Select>All
  5. copy the picture, then switch to Version A and paste the selection (it should paste into its own layer as 'Layer 1')
  6. Click on 'Layer 0' (which is Version A) and change its opacity to 30%
  7. Create a new layer under 'Layer 0' which is filled with white only (or whatever background color you like)
  8. Click on 'Layer 1' (which is Version B), and using the Move tool (and nudge), align the molecules in 'Layer 1' to 'Layer 0'
  9. Some parts of 'Layer 1' are transparent and shouldn't be. Using the Paint Bucket tool fill in these areas with white (or whichever color you find appropriate).
  10. Admire your handiwork; put it in a publication, presentation, or poster.
