Consider using ambertools ptraj for instance, which could do the pdb export.

Best regards.

Objet : Re: vmd-l: how to convert dcd to pdbs in command line


I am trying to convert a dcd to a series of pdb's without opening the VMD GUI. The reason is that I don't have enough ram to store the DCD (70,000
frames) into memory. VMD always crashes unless I use a truncated DCD. I would like to use all frames since the frames will be analyzed by another software (Caver3.0). Is there a way to tell vmd to write out all PDBs in the command line (preferably without water although I can remove those later)?

Thank you
