For those interested in using MATLAB to generate VRML 2.0 animations
of molecular dynamics sequences, the VRML Molecule Toolbox (VMT)
(http://gepasi.dbs.aber.ac.uk./bka/vrml/vmt.htm) may be of help.

The VMT can do the following:

1) Create a animation from a sequence of conformations
(molecular_dynamics2VRML.m)
2) Create a static VRML object with bonds for a molecule (vrmlmol.m)
3) Generates VRML mesh surfaces. (mesh2VRML.m)
2) Generates extruded shapes. (extrusion.m)

Note that no bonds are included between atoms in the animation.

Two script-files have been created to demonstrate the use of the most
important
routines in the toolbox:

script1.m  - generation of static model of a molecule with bonds
script2.m  - generation of animation.


Requirements:

MATLAB 5.x
