Hello everyone,

i am trying to make some small animations of my protein for some
presentations. I used the following tcl scripting:

  proc make_rotation_animated_gif {}
         set frame 0
         for {set i 0} {$i < 360} {incr i 20}
                 set filename snap.[format "%04d" $frame].rgb
                 render snapshot $filename
                 incr frame
                 rotate y by 20
         exec convert -delay 10 -loop 4 snap.*.rgb movie.gif
         rm snap.*.rgb

but when i type in the vmd console make rotation_animated_gif i get
the following error:

make: *** No rule to make target `rotation_animated_movie'. Stop.
child process exited abnormally

Any suggestions are welcome

Thanks in advance
