sphere_quality controls the rendering quality of sphere objects.


# the default value is 1
set sphere_quality, <integer>

Larger values of <integer> result in higher quality sphere rendering. Values >1 may result in poor performance during real-time rotation or translation.

Note: Selecting values larger than 2 with stick_ball = 1 (enabled) causes PyMol to crash in the Windows version.
