My goal is to make a simple movie from PyMol for inclusion in a powerpoint presentation.  I understand how to use the png files to make an avi file.


What I need help with is using the external GUI Movie commands to make my movie.  I want to use the x-rock command, turn on my ligand, x-rock again, turn off ligand, display second ligand and repeat the process.  So far, I’ve only used the external GUI command line to do util.mrock. I can’t find documentation for the Movie commands (Program, Update Program, etc.).  I figure I could use a script to do all the actions I need, but I can’t figure out how to call Movie/Program/Static Loop/X-rock,…..
