Render Figures Artistically
PyMOL boasts an internal ray caster for ray tracing, a graphics technique that enhances shadows and smooths jagged edges to render high-resolution 3-D images.
The images below illustrate the striking difference between a conventional, non-ray-traced image and a ray-traced image created using PyMOL. The ray-traced image showcases smoother sticks, better surface reflection, and a smoother surface boundary.
