[Chimera-users] Analysis of the contact maps from the MARTINI MD trajectory

update :

already playing with the plugin MD movie and  "residue iteration
network within the trajectory" tool
just selecting atoms from the chain A as 1st selection
and other atoms from other chains as 2nd selection

running calculation (trying to varry cut-off corresponded to vdw overlap radii)

obtained error
AttributeError: 'ResInteractionDialog' object has no attribute 'markers'

  File "/opt/UCSF/Chimera64-1.10.2/share/Movie/ResInteraction.py",
line 535, in Apply
    markerSettings = [(m['xy'], m['rgba']) for m in self.markers]

See reply log for Python traceback.

Does it means that somethig special should be specified for the

Thanks !
