You might try the "analyze matrix" command in ptraj.
I see this around page 259 of the Amber9 manual:
"thermo" calculates entropy, heat capacity, and internal energy from the
structure of
a molecule (average coordinates, see above) and its vibrational
frequencies using
standard statistical mechanical formulas for an ideal gas. This option
is only available
for mwcovar matrices.
Add something like:
analyze matrix mwcvmat out filename thermo [vecs vecs] [reduce]
to what you have already done.
