What do the Quality, Balance, and Performance options on the Rendering button of the Style toolbar actually do?

Like other style settings, these options consist of several settings that could be made independently, but are conveniently collected into one action. They are basically a combination of molecular representation and surface settings chose for high quality appearance, for speed when making view changes, or a balance between the two. The actual Maestro commands for these are listed below.

Balance settings:
repall simplifymoving=true cpklresolution=8
repall cpkhresolution=13
ribbon ribbonsteps=4 strandsteps=4 thintubesteps=4 tubesteps=4
repall wirebondsmooth=auto enhancedepth=true
surfaceoption lowqualitytransparency=never
surfaceresolution lowresstyle=solid

Quality settings:
repall simplifymoving=true cpklresolution=15
repall cpkhresolution=30
ribbon ribbonsteps=10 strandsteps=10 thintubesteps=10 tubesteps=10
repall wirebondsmooth=on enhancedepth=true
surfaceoption lowqualitytransparency=never
surfaceresolution lowresstyle=solid

Performance settings:
repall simplifymoving=true cpklresolution=8
repall cpkhresolution=10
ribbon ribbonsteps=2 strandsteps=2 thintubesteps=2 tubesteps=2
