If I understand correctly that you want to see the system axes at the actual origin then type the following in the VMD console:
 axes location origin

                          I am creating movie with VMD. I am trying to see the XYZ-coordinate or Origin (0,0,0) of my sytem in the movie. But the origin is VMD shows most probable not the true origin of the system, most probably the system traslated (I am not quite sure though). Form the *.XYZ file which I use to make the movie, I know that my system is 3.5 Angs. away from the XY plane. This origin is the original Origin (0,0,0) with respect to the coordinates I feed to VMD through the *.XYZ file. So how can I see the Origin or XYZ- axis (with respect to the coordinate of my system) when I am creating the movie?
 Thanking you in advance
