Hi Everyone!
I use VMD for modeling molecules on surfaces and I want to create the illusion that a molecule is moving across the surface in a particular direction. (Imagine a Star Trek warp speed kind of effect.) I don't think that VMD would be able to do something like this so I wanted to try exporting the data using vmd into something that Maya or some other program could handle. Could anyone give a recommendation of the best way to start? (what file formats are more universal would be a good start) I saw in the manual that you can export for rendering, but I'm not so sure that this is what I want here since I need to modify it a bit. Is there maybe a program that is easier to export to than maya for post image processing?
Thanks for your help!
