Dear AMBER users,

I am trying to make a movie in VMD using amber .crd files. I loaded the
initial .pdb file. Then I followed the following commands. But my protein is
moving randomly, I am sure that is not the movie what I am trying to make.

>file > new molecule > i browsed and loaded the molecule

>file > load data into molecule > I browsed and loaded the .crd file

> extensions > visualization > movie maker

I clicked the movie make button. I tried to make movie by changing the
renderer settings and movie settings. But I am not getting any movie rather
I am getting very random motion of my protein. While doing simulation I gave
ntx=7 and my .crd file consists of 250 frames. Could anyone help me to make
a movie with detailed description since this is the first time I am trying
to make a movie.

Thanks a lot in advance.
