Hi Jon,

It is also possible to use the origin command to set the origin to a specified position or to use a selection for determining the origin (origin selection). In that way you can get what you want by setting the origin for each molecule before doing a rotation.

Hi Jon,

I don't know if this is possible, but Warren posted some weeks ago two
scripts you can run on two PyMOL sessions, in order to synchronize the view
on both visualization windows.
Have a look at these two links:

It might do the trick for you.

Subject: [PyMOL] Multiple origins possible?

Hi all,

I'm new new to PyMol, but have a question so would appreciate any
pointers people have. I currently read in a molecule to pymol, 'copy'
it, and color the two copies at different positions. I set a single
origin, being the centre of gravity of the combined molecules. Ideally,
I'd like to be able to set two origins, and have the molecules rotate
synchronously side-by-side rather than as one object, so I can compare
more easily. Is this possible with PyMol?
