What Is State in PyMol
Frames and "mset" Command
"mplay" Command and Movie Settings
mdo" Command to Change Views
"until.mroll()" - Movie Rolling Function
"movie.produce" - Export Movie File in MPEG Format
- PyMol uses the "state" concept to represent a particular arangement of
molecule structure objects.
- PyMol creates new states when loading multiple molecule structures from files.
- PyMol uses the "frame" concept to
represent a single image in a set of still images
that generates moving pictures when played sequentially at a high speed.
- PyMol defines frames with the "mset" command based on states.
- PyMol "mplay" command lets you to play all frames at a given frame rate
and other movie settings.
- PyMol "mdo" command lets you to specify commands to be executed when
a given frame is played.
- PyMol "madd/minsert/mdelete/mcopy/mmove" commands let you to update frames
already defined in the movie set.
- PyMol "until.mroll()" function lets you to generate "mdo" commands for a range
of frame to roll the camera 360 degrees.
- PyMol "movie.produce" command lets you to export movie to a file in MPEG file.
