CCL: Conformational Changes - Animation

 Sent to CCL by: "Sten Nilsson Lill" [stenil]![]
 with VMD I have rendered snapshots of an enzyme along a reaction profile.
 Then it was simple to add the snapshots together to form a movie using
 Windows Movie Maker.
 An alternative might be to generate a morph between two different
 conformations/states. For example if you have two crystal structures which
 differ in some domain movement you can generate a morph to visualize the
 movement. I used the web-based tool at which
 works really great.
 Hope this helps,
