Subject: [PyMOL] Single transparent sphere


Hi,

Does anyone know of a good way to create a single transparent sphere of varying size? We've tried using a single atom and changing the vdw, but we are unable to produce a surface of a single atom. CGO objects work but cannot be made transparent. What we'd really like is a transparent CGO sphere. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jim
