Keeping initial configuration during post processing in OVITO
« on: January 10, 2019, 11:51:22 PM »
Hello,

I was wondering is there any way to keep the initial configuration of the simulation during post processing in OVITO? I have provided an example in the attached file for more clarity. Regarding the attached file, I want to see the initial configuration in a transparent mode which is superimposed on the final configuration during post processing in OVITO at each time step. Would be overlying an option for that ? Any suggestion on doing that or how to develop a python code for this process is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Reza.

Hi Reza,

yes, you can just import the second file using the Import File button and then click "add to scene".
To make particles transparent, you can use the Compute property modifier and generate a particle property "Transparency".
