Dear Stephen Miller:
Also, don't overlook the fact that pymol itself is a movie player. In
powerpoint you can create what is called a hyperlink to pymol, and then
you can just load in your macro (pml script) and your movie starts
playing embedded in powerpoint. This is far better because you can
move the molecule around while the movie plays, zoom in and out, etc.
This gives a sense of immediacy in a presentation that is lost with an
animated gif, or whatever movie player you might use. The hyperlink
feature works better in windows powerpoint than mac powerpoint, BTW.

Could you provide some more details on this procedure. So far I have
only managed to include an icon/object in PowerPoint that starts PyMol
in an extra window (with a specified script).
