Given that this is your third post on the same topic, an
important point needs to be made:
It is not reasonable for one user to expect other
PyMOL mailing list participants to teach them how to use the software,
especially for involved tasks such as movie-making. Open source
is largely about having the freedom and the opportunity to be
self-sufficient. Indeed, the implicit expectation for free or
open-source usage of PyMOL is that you will be strictly self-reliant, all
the way down to compiling the current open-source code yourself, if necessary,
since that is the one thing DeLano Scientific gives away without any expectation
With respect to obtaining assistance, the PyMOL user
community will happily provide hints, exchange limited know-how, and point
you at existing resources (such as Slerpy). However, it is unrealistic to
expect one's peers to do more than that. They are busy folks, too!
Thus, if one does not get an answer to his or her question, it is generally
because one is asking for too much. Repeating such requests over and over
again is poor list etiquette.
Direct end-user assistance is something DeLano Scientific
can provide, but only for Support-Level Subscribers (Power Users) who are
effectively purchasing some help through high-level sponsorship of the
project. We do try to assist Maintenance-Level Subscribers (Casual
Users) on a workload-permitting basis, but right now we are swamped with
1.0, docs, and various Sponsor requests. Of course, when appropriate, we
channel such assistance through the public mailing list so that others can
benefit from some of the information we provide to PyMOL Sponsors.
With respect to
movie-making, this should eventually become easier to do thanks to improved
software and documentation. But at the present time, it is not
-- PyMOL is rather weak in this area. Generally speaking, you must
first learn to write a PyMOL command script or a Python program, render and
export a set of numbered PNG files, and then apply an external tool (such as
QuickTime Pro) to assemble the raw images into a compressed movie.

I am trying to make a movie in pymol with two structure of the same
protein.one is crystal structure and one is NMR structure.The N-terminal
part of crystal structure is in open conformation whereas that of NMR is
closed.What command should I use.Is it possible to make the movie with the
commands given in pymol manual or I should use Slerpy from PyMOL wiki.Any
suggestions are welcome.Thanx in advance to all.
