[Chimera-users] Viewing Gromacs 4.6.5 trajectories

Hi William,
	Chimera shows the 4.6 trajectories I have on hand without problem, and there shouldn't be any incompatible changes between the 4.6 and 4.6.5 releases.  Therefore I think I'm going to need (some of) your data to figure out the problem.  Can you send me your .tpr file and a few frames of your .xtc/.trr file?  You can write out a .xtc/.trr of just the first few frames of your trajectory with Gromacs' trjconv tool with the -dropover flag.

The old trajectories from gromacs 4.5.5 load with out any problems. Has anyone else experienced this?
