Dear PyMOL users,

 

I’m wondering about coloring CGO objects in PyMOL. In the recent version 1.7. If ALPHA is specified for a cgo object, all the colors are neglected. In version 1.6 and previous everything works just fine. Is this a bug, an intension or am I missing a point somewhere? Let’s take a following piece of code. It provides correct colorful triangle, only in the case ‘ALPHA’ line is omitted for version of PyMOL 1.7+ (I’m running Windows).

 

data = [

  BEGIN,TRIANGLES,

  ALPHA,1.0,

  COLOR,1.00,0.30,0.30,

  NORMAL,-0.997,-0.057,-0.051,

  VERTEX,52.083,62.446,50.739,

  COLOR,0.6,0.60,0.10,

  NORMAL,-0.999,-0.009,-0.044,

  VERTEX,52.048,63.219,50.739,

  COLOR,1.000,0.567,0.567,

  NORMAL,-0.998,-0.059,0.024,

  VERTEX,52.076,62.446,51.498,

  COLOR,0.600,0.2,0.2,

  END

]

cmd.load_cgo(data,'triangle')

 

Thank you for your answer
