Matrix_copy copies a transformation matrix from one object to another.

This command is often used after a protein structure alignment to bring other related objects into the same frame of reference.


matrix_copy source_name, target_name


# load two molecules
load mol1.pdb
load mol2.pdb

# load their maps
load map1.ccp4
load map2.ccp4

# align the two molecules
align mol2////CA, mol1////CA

# copy mol2's map to mol2
matrix_copy mol2, map2

# show the isomesh
isomesh mesh1, map1
isomesh mesh2, map2
