You can hack the morph script with code similar to view_render_change,
or one of the several movie scripts so that you render a new .rgb or .ppm
file at every frame. Take a look at the other script library examples
to see how it is done.

But I have trouble exporting the animation to a movie file (e.g. mpeg), It seems that I can only save the interpolated coordinate frames. Is there a way to in vmd to convert it to a movie file or at least to save as .rgb file for each frame and I can use a media converter to make the movie later.
