Hi Jordan,

I don't know if this helps you, but you can start pymol in "presentation mode" (by saving a session with scenes and then edit the name to "psw" instead of "pse"). Then you will immediately go full-screen and hitting space (or the clicker I presume) will let you move to the next scene.
This might not be "fancy" enough, but I thought I'd mention it.

One other thing you could do is to save the files in the movie (instead of making a movie directly) and then make small movies from the output png's.

Hope this helps,

I’m using powerpoint for mac, so I don’t have the luxury of Axpymol (any plans for OSX?)

I wanted to make a movie that iterates through scenes of a PyMol session and pauses there until I hit the “next” button on powerpoint. My workaround was to simply make a movie that went trough all scenes and break them up into separate movies. When I hit “next” on the clicker for powerpoint, it would make that movie appear on the slide and it would be appear to be a continuation of the last movie.

I was wondering if there is a way to render movies by frame. For instance only tell PyMol to render frames 1-30. Then in another movie 31-60 etc. Perhaps the simplest way would be to dump every frame as a separate .png, and reconstruct manually.

Any thoughts on this? How to make it easier, or does this seem like the easiest way.
