I like VMD for this.

It's free at

Probably the easiest way to create movies is to write out your pdb files,
say "a000.pdb a005.pdb a010.pdb" etc., and then type:
> ls -1 a[0-9]*.pdb | awk '{printf"animate read pdb %s\n",$1}' > alist

then run vmd:
> vmd a000.pdb

and in the vmd console:
vmd> play alist

To create animated gif's etc. is very easy; see the above web pages.

Best of luck,
