I mean coloring by some physical quantity, like velocity, speed, potential energy, etc.

 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?
 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
 Thanks in
