You might try the clone representations found in the extensions>visualization menu.

Subject: vmd-l: default representations for multiple molecules

Hello all,

I am attempting to create a script in order to open multiple molecules together with predefined default representations.

I think that I am close enough but I have a small problem.

When I am calling vmd from terminal I am using this command:

vmd -m traj*

So I am achieving to have about 100 different molecules imported at the vmd.
The problem is that only the first one has the predefined representation I have set at the .vmdrc file.

In particular I have added these three lines at the .vmdrc file:

color Display Background white
display projection Orthographic
mol modstyle 0 0 CPK 1.000000 0.300000 10.000000 10.000000

but only the first imported molecule appear with CPK representation.

I tried also:
mol all modstyle 0 0 CPK 1.0000000 0.300000000 10.000000 10.000000

If anyone can help me I would appreciate it a much.

Thank you very much in advance,
