a while ago I’ve wrote some API for easier user defined animations
for movies in VMD. There, it would be pretty easy to do.


I’ve also updated it a bit and will append the new files, maybe
someone will update it in the online VMD script library ;)

Let me know if you need help

Hi Demetrius,

Do you have an example from others that highlights what you want to
do? I'm not sure I understand what you mean by several molecules
moving in different directions. Fundamentally, animations are just a
series of still images. The movie maker and VCR tools are one way of
orchestrating the production process, but aren't the only

Hello VMD Community,

I am attempting to create a movie in VMD where it appears that several
molecules are moving in different directions at the same time. I am
having trouble accomplishing this, I am using the built in Movie Maker
and ViewChangeRender tools.

Is there any way to do this?
