Ray Tracing

set ray_trace_mode, 1 #this is for backborder
set antialias, 6; #higher the value smoother the picture is 
set ray_shadow, 1 #switch on the shadows
set ray_trace_gain, 0.0 #to alter the thickness of the outline
set cartoon_fancy_helices, 1 #for fancy cartoon
set cartoon_highlight_color, grey #to colour inside of helix
set ray_texture, 4 #it gives a matte style texture
ray 2400, 2400 #this is fore really high resolution image, you may not need it

These are the two options I usually use: first one colours the inisde of helix as grey the second one doesn’t
