When set "on", this setting causes PyMOL to display all states or in NMR jargon: all the models in the ensemble. The 'default' behavior (OFF) can be overridden by placing the "set all_states, on" statement into your '.pymolrc' file, located in your login directory (under all flavors of unix).
set all_states, on set all_states, off
# fetch a PDB and show it in multiple states; this one # line does the work of the next 6 lines. fetch 1nmr # this is older code, use the above code which is newer import urllib2 pdbCode = '1BRV' pdbUrl = 'http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/downloadFile.do?fileFormat=pdb&compression=NO&structureId='+pdbCode pdbFile = urllib2.urlopen(pdbUrl) pdbContent = pdbFile.read() cmd.read_pdbstr(pdbContent, pdbCode) set all_states, on
This shows the effect of turning on/off the all_states setting used with the script above.
- There was an error with importing ensembles of ensembles files (complex MOL2 files) before revision 3541. If you experience this problem, update to 3541 or later.
