[Chimera-users] Motion of an atom

Hello friends,

I need some help here.

I created a basic model having just an atom and set its coordinates as
(0,0,0). Now I want to make it move along a certain path defined
mathematically (say, along x axis) and I need to see it move. So I used a *
for* loop. But I couldn't see and motion and soon realised that the loop is
very quick in executing and thus I could see the atom at its
last coordinates. So I tried to add delay of 0.5 seconds for each loop
by importing *time* module and useing *time.sleep*. But still I couldn't
see any motion and the coordinates of the atom is set only at the end of
the *for* loop. I could not see the intermediate path. I am sure you people
must have tried this earlier and this problem has a solution but I just
couldn't figure it out.

Can you please help me out?

Thank you in advance.
