Like, what is the goal? The one last week was weird, since it looked like it wanted a single surface to have 4 colors. What exactly is pyMol doing to decide the color of the surface? I don’t know. I use VMD, so how pyMol does stuff is a dark art. I stand by my statement from last week that VMD can do anything with enough scripting, but without some guidance on what an image represents that you want to replicate, or some info on how pyMol made color choices, you are just going to get generic answers.

Subject: Re: vmd-l: Color Transition in VMD

believe me i read it before i ask my question, but the proposed solutions didn't fix a thing, even by using tcl scripting it's impossible to achieve my goal. I hope that the developers of VMD could include this functionnality in the future.

Does VMD support customizing color transitions like in Pymol software ?
