The morph command is an incentive PyMOL feature (not available in open-source version). Given a two-state object, morph can create an interpolated trajectory from the first to the second conformation.

Notice: There is a new morph command in PyMOL 1.6


morph source, target [, first [, last [, refinement [, async [, steps ]]]]]


  • source = string: name of two-state input object
  • target = string: name of output object to create
  • first = int: start state of source {default: 1}
  • last = int: end state of source {default: 2}
  • refinement = int: number of sculpting refinement cycles to clean distorted intermediates {default: 10}
  • steps = int: number of states for target object {default: 30}

Warning: arguments first, last and steps new in PyMOL 1.5 (up to 1.4 they are always at default values)


<syntaxhighlight lang="python">

  1. get open and closed conformation of adenylate kinase

fetch 1ake 4ake, async=0

  1. make two state object

align 1ake and chain A, 4ake and chain A, ..→
