I am running pymol .93. When I try to ray trace a scene, the gui shows a
white status bar that moves halfway across the screen and then freezes.
After this the GUI is frozen and must be killed. No error messages are
shown. The computer is running RedHat 9 and has 4 processors. Has
anyone else experienced this problem? Do you have any solutions?
This message may double post because I accidentally tried to post it from

Hi Morri -
The progress bar for raytracing doesn't move linearly - the first half
of the bar is covered fairly quickly, then more slowly, then very
slowly, then the last fifth is usually covered in one jump. Are you
sure you just aren't being impatient? Try raytracing a very simple
scene, like a single amino acid in spheres mode, to see if it hangs
then. Also try raytracing parts of your scene in case some funny bit of
your molecule is causing this problem. Finally, try reducing the
complexity of your surfaces and/or spheres: "set surface_quality, -1" (0
is the default).
