Type Python Script
Author(s) Jason Vertrees

This code has been put under version control in the project Pymol-script-repo

This scripts provides the stereo_ray command, which saves two ray traced images in PNG format. The left image is rotated +3 degrees and the right image is rotated -3 degrees.

Note that the end result is almost identical to using "walleye" stereo mode, which might be more convenient and is readily available in PyMOL.


stereo_ray filename [, width [, height ]]


import stereo_ray 
stereo_ray output, 1000, 600

This will create two images, "output_l.png" and "output_r.png". Just paste the two images next to each other (in some image editing program) and you're done.

Left Image
Right Image
Combined Images


To obtain the same result without the script, use the ray and the png command like this:

ray angle=+3
png left-image.png
ray angle=-3
png right-image.png

Obtain almost the same result using the stereo command:

stereo walleye
png combined.png, ray=1
