Protein Insight Publisher's description
from Chan-Yong Park
Protein Insight is a outstanding software that allows you to visualize protein structures.
Protein Insight is a outstanding software that allows you to visualize protein structures. A the Microsoft Direct3D and the Microsoft .net framework based protein structure visualization platform. Because Protein Insight completely utilize a vertex shader and a pixel shader, Protein Insight has very fast rendering speed although it has high quality rendering. Protein Insight is also highly extensible with a plug-ins. The plug-ins can be written in C#, Visual Basic, C++/CLI and other languages supported by the .net framework.
Select, Store and Visualization:
A method for protein visualization in Protein Insight is very easy and intuitive. First, you can select atoms, residues, chains and/or PDBs. Second, a selected group is called a Visual Part(VP). The VP is stored in the VP list. Last, each VP is visualized on the 3D visualization pane. In this picture, three visualization parts are displayed, surface display style, ribbon display style and ball-and-stick display style. Each VP has their own visualization properties to change style.
High Quality Real-time Rendering:
Each VP in the VP list can be rendered with many rendering options. Each VP is rendered with one of visualization method such as wireframe, ball, ball and stick, space fill, ribbon or surface. Each visualization method has its own rendering options such as color scheme, model and render quality, clipping planes, transparency and so on.
Highly Extensible Plug-Ins:
Protein Insight supports highly extensible plug-ins. The plug-ins are .net assembly and made with Protein Insight or a .net compiler such as Microsoft Visual Studio. The plug-in can be written in C#, Visual Basic, C++/CLI and other languages supported by the .net frame
Creating High Quality Movie:
Protein Insight can generate a high-quality movie. The movie size can be larger than 800x600 and in SD or a HD quality movie. In the plug-in program, you can take screenshots and then make the movie with them. Here is an example of a plug-in software and the resultant movie.
Each VP has its own visualization properties. Therefore, you can easily modify many visualization options in a property pane.
Tree View and Residue View Pane:
In Protein Insight, there are tree view and residue view panes. Each pane is useful for selecting the atoms, residues, chains and/or PDBs and showing them. Selected atoms in the tree view, residue view and 3D visualization pane are fully synchronized.
