hello sanjeev,

could you please elaborate a little more, what you want to do.

there are many things, that you can do with VMD with respect
to different positions in an md-trajectory.

e.g. via the Trajectory Tab in the Graphical Representation dialog.
you can superimpose several frames via the Draw Multiple Frames input

you can require, that a specific selection is newly evaluated
for each fram via the Update Selection Every Frame button.

you can load different Frames of a trajectory as separate
molecules via the Frames input fields in the Molecule File Browser
dialog and visualize them entirely differently and even move
them independently, if needed.

perhaps a closer look at the user's guide will already
provide you with an answer to your problem.
