Subject: AMBER: VMD Movie .mdcrd file ptraj

Hello All,
I previously mentioned that I was having difficulty generating a trajectory movie using my .prmtop and .mdcrd files in VMD. It was recommended that checking of the .mdcrd file in ptraj was the best follow up step to ensure that the file was not corrupted.
True to these wishes, I followed on the example of Tutorial 8 ( Case Study: All Atom Structure Prediction and Folding Simulations of a Stable Protein by Ross Walker ) and got an output file that showed no errors (see attachment).
I would welcome any suggestions as to how I should proceed from this point onwards to realize my ambition of generating a trajectory movie in VMD.
Thanks much and have a great day!
