[Chimera-users] multiple morphs

Hi Charles,

   You can use the "morph" and "coordset" Chimera commands to create the 
morphs and play them.  The coordset command is new in Chimera 1.4 so 
you'll need a Chimera 1.4 daily build to use it.  There's an example 
using these two commands at the bottom of the following Chimera movie 
making tutorial.



Documentation for these two commands is here:



If you use the coordset command 3 times for the 3 different morphs with 
no "wait" commands between them, then all 3 will play concurrently.

   If you are not planning on using the Chimera morph calculation but 
instead have separate PDB models for frames of your morph the following 
mailing list message may help:
