orla,
 
not actually had to do this, but I think you can try the translate command.
 
----------------------------------------------

translate

DESCRIPTION

   "translate" can be used to translate the atomic coordinates of a
   molecular object.  Behavior differs depending on whether or not the
   "object" parameter is specified.

   If object is None, then translate translates atomic coordinates
   according to the vector provided for the selection and in the state
   provided.  All representation geometries will need to be
   regenerated to reflect the new atomic coordinates.

   If object is set to an object name, then selection and state are
   ignored and instead of translating the atomic coordinates, the
   object's overall representation display matrix is modified.  This
   option is for use in animations only.

   The "camera" option controls whether the camera or the model's
   axes are used to interpret the translation vector.

USAGE

   translate vector [,selection [,state [,camera [,object ]]]]

PYMOL API

   cmd.translate(list vector, string selection = "all", int state = 0,
                 int camera = 1, string object = None)

EXAMPLES

   translate [1,0,0], name ca

NOTES

   if state = 0, then only visible state(s) are affected.
   if state = -1, then all states are affected.
-------------------------------------------------
 
This seems like a pain, probably a better option somewhere, not sure?  Hope this hopes.
 
 
Cheers,
Nick

Hi  all

This probably a very stupid question but its driving me mad. I have produced two Raster 3D scences using molscript and have loaded them into pymol.

What I want to do is to be able to move them on screen independent of each other. Is this possible?

 

Regards

Orla
