When you open the .DCD file, the structure file (.pdb, .crd, .msf or .iff)
must be placed in the same directory and it must have the same name
excluding the extension (e.g. mymolecule.dcd and mymolecule.pdb).
If the two files have got different names, you can open the the molecule
(e.g. mymolecule.pdb) as first step and thus the trajectory file (e.g.
mytrajectory.dcd) using the Calculate -> Analysis menu item and clicking the
open button in the File Name box.
For more information, see VEGA manual
