Has anyone managed to run animation from .xtc trajectory data from MD simulations?
I am using ePMV (v0.5.145) in Blender 2.62 and I loaded the 1BTA.pdb file from the Tutorials section
) and loaded the accompanying 1BTA.xtc trajectory
data into the Data player tab; the protein states corresponding to simulation frames are ok and scroll-able in
the step/value panel, but I had no luck with actually seeing the simulation/animation happening...
Anybody could help me with that please?
I would be immensely grateful, as I could really use it for my scientific visualizations.
Thanks in advance!!
I made a small progress - I managed to export my simulation data into .pdb format and load it into Blender
with ePMV and then in Data Player I can now select .model in Data tab; I can now see the different protein
confromation states in the viewport. BUT - I can only see the PointCloud representation being affected, which is
still a bummer, since I cannot render it, nor I can animate it (actually I can, but the atom vertices just fall down
and behave like particle system of some kind).
Also, when I change the protein state/frame the protein PointCloud representation position has now a different
location to its backbone mesh which stays in the centre. Anybody could give me a hint how to link
the two so I can animate it/render its states?
Again - many thanks for help!
