Dear Users,

I have some nodes with GPU cards usually for MD simulations. As tachyon
rendering of VMD seems to support GPU acceleration and tachyon rendering of
transparent is SOOOO slow, I am wondering whether VMD could save perfectly
a viewpoint (maybe as a visualization state?) and then being able to be
sourced on a CLI node with a tachyon rendering tcl script. In this way,
single or even multiple renders with transparent components could be done
easily by scripting.

Any experience shared would be greatly appreciated.
