## [PyMOL] PyMOL input for the Mac and movie question

 [PyMOL] PyMOL input for the Mac and movie question From: Scott Classen - 2002-09-09 17:46:03 ```Mac PyMOL users A lab mate has a Microsoft 3 button optical mouse so I tried it out on my G3 powerbook and it works very well with PyMOL. Yeah!!! I guess I'll have to but a mouse. OK I am now trying to make a movie and I have a question I start the movie out like this: mset 1 x72 mdo 1: turn x,5; turn y,5 mdo 2: turn x,5; turn y,5 mdo 3: turn x,5; turn y,5 mdo 4: turn x,5; turn y,5 mdo 5: turn x,5; turn y,5 etc etc So I've made a 72 frame movie with 5 degree rotations about the x and y axes. If I'm thinking about this properly the molecule should be in the exact same orientation at the end of the movie (i.e. 72x5=360degrees) however this is not the case. Why? Warren, could you make available the script you used to make the lambda demo movie that came with PyMOL? This would help greatly with my understanding of how to do more complicated motions in PyMOL.
