This worked. but had same problem that I already mentioned.
It swaps the specific atoms for all frames, but the criteria is based on
only last frame's xyz position. Which means, only the last frame looks ok.
Other frame's swapping is wrong.
There are SiOH4 and H2O molecules inside the system, and they are all
flying inside the periodic box. "Animate write" swaps the atoms of all
frame, but it is based on last frame's position, not based on each frame's
position. This is same result I get with for-loop, which I couldn't escape.
What I want is, swap the atoms of all frame based on my criteria, for each
How can I escape from this situation?
