Movit

Hi everyone !

I wanted to see roughly if one protein could dock on another one, and could not find any mouse setting allowing to do that. Here is a script that does just that.

USAGE : movit <selection>

The selection can now be translated/rotated with the following keyboard shortcuts:

q,a : x translation

w,s : y translation

e,d : z translation


r,f : x rotation

t,g : y rotation

y,h : z rotation


Use : run movit.py during startup. Then, 'movit selection'.

It is not very practical, does anybody know how to do that with the mouse instead of just one step at a time like here ?

from pymol import cmd
 
def movit(selection="all"):
    """USAGE : movit <selection>

               with the following keyboard shortcuts:

               w,s : y translation
               e,d : z translation
 
               r,f : x rotation
               t,g : y rotation
               y,h : z rotation
    """
