Re: AMBER: Is there any way to extract one frame from a whole trajectory just saving one file by using ptraj

I don't think so, I think the trajout command is applied to every
frame that was processed. It isn't many frames, though, so you
should be able to just run ptraj twice - once for the analysis of
all frames, once to extract the single frame (specifying the frame
# in the trajin command).
