Turn on Show and AO in VMD display settings

Use Tychon, not internal tachyon in VMD render and add this to the command line

-res 4000 3000

See Tachyon doc: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/natty/man1/tachyon.1.html

For Transparent Surface

Add this option:  -trans_max_surfaces [1 to 5], it seems 1 work better.
