dear amber specialists,

since Im obout to do a 100 ns simulation (pmemd, Amber8), I have to cut my tajectory for analysis. I tried this via ptraj:

ptraj sh3_cryst_long_cut.ptraj

with sh3_cryst_long_cut.ptraj:

trajin ./sh3_cryst_NTV_100200ps_orest.mdcrd
trajout ./sh3_cryst_long_1_1000.mdcrd

The output was the following:

Successfully completed readParm.

PTRAJ: Processing input file...
       Input is from file sh3_cryst_long_cut.ptraj

PTRAJ: trajin ./sh3_cryst_NTV_100200ps_orest.mdcrd

Could not open file (./sh3_cryst_NTV_100200ps_orest.mdcrd) with mode (r)

PTRAJ: trajout ./sh3_cryst_long_1_1000.mdcrd
WARNING in ptraj(): No input trajectories specified (trajin), aborting...

I tested AMBER7 as well as AMBER8 ptraj and checked several times whether the input file exists. What might be the reason? Are there problems with detecting a pmemd trajectory file, or is something wrong with the extension to hinder autodetection?
