Some MDDisplay tips which might help:

You might try hiding the side chains:

<0> (zero - black on the <c>olor palette)

You can filter out higher frequency motions with <F>ilter and the entering,
6 (or so)<ENTER>

Finally, the "Static" menu button will let you see the first or average
frame in grey, on which your dynamic structure will be superimposed

The above are documented a bit on the '?' panel

Thanks again for trying MD Display!
