There is no direct control of the thickness, although adjusting =
"ray_trace_gain" (0.001 to 2.0) will have some effect. However, the =
most effectively way to control the thickness is to adjust antialiasing =
and image size to achieve the desired effect in the final image. =20
By the way, you are not the only one who likes these modes: Leah =
Blasiak at MIT used "set ray_trace_mode, 3" to get the cover of the May =
22nd issue of Chemical & Engineering News in relation to her work on the =
SyrB2 iron enzyme. <http://pubs.acs.org/cen/currentissue.html> (see =
"Recent Issues" image lower right -- Enzymatic Halogenation).
Of course, credit where credit is due: David Goodsell =
<http://www.scripps.edu/mb/goodsell/> was the obvious source of =
inspiration for this recent addition to PyMOL.
