selecting certain frames of trajectory files
« on: February 28, 2019, 04:41:17 PM »
Hello Ovito users,

Is there a way to specifiy certain frames (say frames 400 -500 of a trajectory that contains 500 frames) so that I can apply modifiers only to those frames while feeding the whole trajectory file to ovito ?

Best,

Alexander Stukowski

Hi,

This doesn't seem possible with the current version of Ovito, at least not in the graphical user interface. What are you trying to accomplish? Do you want to render an animation?

The only way to do this right now is with a Python script, in which you actively turn the modifier on or off while stepping through the trajectory frames with a for-loop.
