Hello again,
I've created a simple 1000 particle system that runs for 100 timesteps.
 I've been testing the moviemaker plugin, and have run into a number of
problems. First, using POV-ray to render causes VMD to crash. Second,
regardless of the renderer used (Tachyon, Internal Tachyon, Snapshot), the
movie severely degrades in quality after around .5 seconds (out of 4 in the
trajectory movie). I know that it has to be small because of the
compression size, but it shouldn't continue to get worse as the movie
plays. Any advice?
