Hi Arham,


I suppose with "each atom can have its particular color" you mean coloring
by element? If so, the xyz format does already allow to mention the element
of the atoms in the 1st column, see
<>, and VMD should use it.
Otherwise please explain more detailed.

Betreff: vmd-l: Simplest file format that includes atom color?




I've written a MD code for EAM potentials. The typical number of atoms is of
the order of 1 million. This code saves the positions in xyz files and I use
VMD for visualization. Now, I'm going to change the output, so that each
atom can have its particular color. I used csv format of ParaView for this
reason, but ParaView doesn't work fast for me. What is the easiest solution
in VMD?


Thanks in advance
