The script creates perpendicular planes.

Nothing to do with cops. Given a simple PyMol scene, attempts to create a CGO background triangle perpendicular to the vector created - which is parallel to the line segment drawn through the camera point and current center of mass - as obtained by "get_position," or "get_view."


  • Load your scene
  • Orient the scene as you wish
  • Run the script

Could it be any simpler?

You can rotate and move the plane using the editing features (A > drag, Shift+Drag with right, middle or left mouse button).
