Using VMD with AMBER
tutorial acts as a brief introduction to using
VMD for visualising
inpcrd, restrt and trajectory files. While only scratching the
what VMD can do it covers setting up a .vmdrc file
to set the default layout
of VMD, loading static structures and performing RMSD
fits between similar
structures. It then goes on to cover loading and
trajectories, both from gas phase/implicit solvent
simulations and from
periodic boundary simulations and shows how to save
individual frames from a
trajectory as well as create an MPEG video of the trajectory. By Ross
