Why do you not use the gmx rdf function, generate the data file and plot it using xmgrace or Excel or any of the other plotting applications available? VMD might not be the best choice if all you want to do is a 2D plot of the RDF.

Subject: vmd-l: radial atom distribution


Dear VMD users

I am simulation a dendrimer using Gromacs software and need to plot the number of atoms at a distance (r) from a carbon atom at the center of dendrimer core (radial atom distribution). Could you help me how can I represent this plot using VMD?

Best regards
