Dear Pymollers,

I am trying to display a cross-section of an active site pocket with a ligand bound in the active site.  For the figure I would like to Z-clip the active site residues (viewed as a surface representation), but not the ligand. To accomplish this I would assume that I need to create two different objects and Z-clip only one of them.  The problem is this: if I create and display both objects and then execute a Z-clip  both of the objects get clipped.  If I create one object, call for a Z-clip, then create the second object, the Z-clip is over-ridden and both full structures (without any Z-clipping) are displayed.

Any suggestions on how I can get selective Z-clipping

Thanks,

Kelley
