Perhaps you could achive this through TCL scripting alone?
Take a look at the
 and view_change_render<>
in the script library <> as
well as the translate<>and
rotate <>
commands in the user guide <>.
A basic knowledge of TCL scripting here is a must. You can send commands to
VMD using a TCP socket with the attached script. I use "uplevel 1 {my tcl
commands}, so that variable definitions and the like persist between two
sent commands.

Best regards,
