When the surface representation is only partially visible (e.g. ligand binding site surface), the surface_smooth_edges setting controls appearance of the surface edges.

New in Incentive PyMOL 1.8.6


  • surface_smooth_edges=off: (default) disables surface edge smoothing.
  • surface_smooth_edges=on: enables surface edge smoothing. Consecutive vertices of the surface edge are averaged resulting in smoother-looking edge.
