Hi all,
this is my first post to mailing list. I am using vmd for my MD visualization and I found it very nice program.
Now, I have been trying to setup my system in a proper way using vmd. The system is protein + membrane.
My aim is to put the protein above the membrane, and tilt it with an angle ALPHA respect to the Z-axes of the protein itself.
I have used the package Orient to rotate the protein and moving it "by hand" I almost get what I want.
However, I am wondering if there is a "clear" and "elegant" way to achieve this job.
any suggestion are welcome.
