Change the renderer from Snapshot (Simple screen shot) to Tachyon. Additionally but optionally enable for Tachyon “Shadows” & “Ambient Occlusion” under ”VMD Main->Display->Display Settings”.

Betreff: vmd-l: how to make the structures in the movie look better


Dear all,


I find in the movie produced by the VMD movie generator are not very ideal. The edges of the structure are unsmooth, whatever representation I use. This is more obvious when I use white backgroud instead of black backgroud. That seems to be hard for publication. Do you have any idea to handle this problems. Thanks.
