i am having difficulty getting a double stranded DNA to appear in one
orientation in vmd

i use the following script in ptraj. in the manual it is recommended to
use image :1-38 bymask :1-38 and image origin center familiar. both of
these commands separated the double strands in vmd. the only script that
kept the double strands together and centered is below. however the
orientation of the dsDNA between the files changes making the movie
unpleasant to watch. any suggestions?
