Temperature in Lammps
« on: January 27, 2017, 03:39:34 PM »
Dear Users,

I want to show temperature while creating the movie. How can we do this as temperature in not a per atom quantity rather global property.
I am importing dump file from lammps. And this file contains only per atom property.

OVITO cannot directly import global thermo data from LAMMPS simulations.

But you could use OVITO's Python script overlay feature for this. That means you have to write a small Python script that reads in the temperature data from a text file (or directly from the LAMMPS log file). In your user-defined viewport overlay function you then print the temperature value for the current simulation frame onto the rendered viewport image.
