Hello everyone,

I have a question regarding camera orientation.  I'm using pymol to explore the surface of the peptide tunnel in the ribosome and would like to change the camera orientation so that I can look around "in there" without getting occluded.  Clipping plane is not useful because I don't want the surface to disappear.  In a sense, I want to change the default camera orientation of pymol from "looking in" to "looking out".  This is much like standing in a room and looking around.  I think the answer lies in the 18 parameters of set_view, but which should I change and how are these computed?
