I want to make a high resolution image of a large protein complex, its the capsid of parvovirus B19 consisting of 60 monomers (pdb code 1S58). I assembled the biological unit using split_states, calculated the surface and saved the png image using the png command, which works fine, but only generates the resolution which is shown on the screen with the OpenGL renderer.
When I use the function ray 1000,1000, which should generate a 1000x1000 px image with the built-in raytrace renderer, Pymol shuts down with the error message:
Runtime Error! This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.
How could I solve this problem? I'm using Windows 2000 on a 2.8 GHz Pentium4 CPU, but had the same problem on WinXP with 2x3.0 GHz PentiumD.
Actually the OpenGL-Quality would be sufficient to me, but not the screen resolution, would rather like a 5000x5000 px or more picture...And I don't mind if the computer has to work at night... ;-)
Thanks for your help!
