Dear Amber users,
               I am facing an imaging issue during the MD simulation of a
DNA duplex. Due to this, the RMSD is shooting up and falls back during the
middle of the simulation. I am observing this problem for 50ns during the
simulation. I used autoimage option followed by image option as below:

parm prmtop
trajin trajin.nc
center :1-16 origin
image origin center familiar
center :1-32 origin
image origin center familiar
trajout reimage.nc

When I don't apply any imaging, the DNA strands are separated and going out
of the box in some frames. But, after performing imaging, the problem is
not completely resolved. Here, a stretch of DNA strand is going away and
causes distortions in the structure for 50ns. I have attached the
corresponding snapshots.

Please suggest any alternative options to overcome this issue.

Thanks in advance
