I have a few questions about lighting in PyMol v0.98. First, is there anyway to increase the intensity of the light source? I ask because I would like to try to backlight my molecule, but whenever I do move the light to behind it, It comes up very dim. I have tried to output a file for use in POV-RAY (huge file, even after limiting the quality of cartoons and surfaces a bit) to add additional pointlights, but the file is so large It takes forever to even try to ray-trace the image. If anyone knows how to add more light sources in PyMol, that would be best but it looks like that is imposible. Any hints?


Thanks, Chris
