create creates a new molecule object from a selection. It can also be used to create states in an existing object. NOTE: this command has not yet been throughly tested.
create name, (selection) [,source_state [,target_state ] ] create name = (selection) [,source_state [,target_state ] ] # (DEPRECATED)
- name = object to create (or modify)
- selection = atoms to include in the new object
- source_state (default: 0 - copy all states)
- target_state (default: 0)
cmd.create(string name, string selection, int source_state, int target_state,int discrete)
If the source and target states are zero (default), all states will be copied. Otherwise, only the indicated states will be copied.
# merging two multi-state objects with the create command # obj1 has 25 states and obj2 has 40 states load multi_state_obj1, obj1 load multi_state_obj2, obj2 # merge the two multi-state objects back to back into obj3 # 0 indicates every states from obj1 should be included # 1 indicates that the first state of obj3 is the first state from obj1 etc. create obj3, obj1, 0, 1 # as obj1 has 25 states, the first state of obj2 must be state 26 to create a multi-state object of obj1 and obj2 back-to-back # 26 indicates that the 26th state of obj3 is state nr. 1 of obj2 etc. create obj3, obj2, 0, 26 # Obj3 now has 65 states (25 from obj1 and 40 from obj2) # save obj3 as a multi-state pdb file # use state=0 to get all states into one pdb file save obj3.pdb, obj3, state=0
