PyMOL is a user-sponsored molecular visualization system on an open-source foundation. It is one of the best 3D visualization software for biological macromolecules/proteins. For more information please check the PyMOL website at http://www.pymol.org/
The PyMOL Wiki is one of the foremost user resources for people learning and using PyMOL. The wiki is located at http://www.pymolwiki.org/
Recently, attempts have been made to document the use of Blender with PyMOL: http://www.pymolwiki.org/index.php/Blender
Your feedback and assistance is welcome to help improve the Wiki resources with tutorials, examples or scripts involving Blender+PyMOL.
I like the Blender/Pymol tutorial.. but how do I import the protein ribbon / surface colour from Pymol into Blender?
I would like the ribbo representation in Blender to have different colours depending on the type of secondary structure.
I would like the surface to be coloured based on electrostatic potential.
When I try to load the protein from Pymol (or other protein structure programs), the colour is not transferred.
