Hey Jmol'ers! I have an announcement and a question. Firstly, I've redesigned my Jmol web app to run completely on JSmol, and to give it a more full screen feel. Check it out here:


I'd love feedback from the community. For this project, I've prepared a couple of tutorials. For a mouse actions tutorial, I'd like to "freeze" one translucent model while allowing another opaque model with the same composition and geometry to be rotated in front of it, to achieve a sort of "matching" effect. I know how to handle the underlying logic of testing whether the atomic positions of the two models match, but I don't know if one of two models in the Jmol window can be frozen in place.

Any idea if this is possible, and if so, how it could be done? I'd rather not resort to two separate applets. Thanks!

Cheers, Mike
