[PyMOL] clipping planes

 [PyMOL] clipping planes From: Nathaniel Echols - 2002-08-06 20:01:55 ```I don't understand how these work at all. Is there any straightforward way, given a structure's position and dimensions and the desired camera position, to calculate the ideal position for the plane? How does PyMOL decide where to put the planes? Right now I'm missing by a small amount and atoms disappear randomly. thanks, Nat ```

Is it possible to get this values somewhere out of pymol that one could use the actual values in a script? I find it a bit complicated and time consuming to play always a few times with the values in a script, to find values which looks fine. Best Regards Christian ```

Looking into this would be a good starting point. from my old notes (origin unknown...): 0-8 is the 3x3 rotation matrix 9-11 is the camera location (I think -- been a while...) 12-14 is the origin of rotation 15-16 are the clipping distances and 17 is the orthoscopic flag.
