As mentioned in the previous reply

... sometimes it can be difficult to get what you want with morphing, and it may be a several-day project.  We do not have time to consult on everybody’s specific morphing problem, so in that reply I had suggested some things you could try.

However, my guess is that you simply did not superimpose the structures first. It is explained in the Help that you have to superimpose the structures first, so it would have saved you (and me) a lot of time if you read that information first.

Also your coot structure has a crazy long bond between residue 502 C and 503 N that it would look better if you deleted.
