yes, it takes Youtube a while until the high res videos are available but
then they look nice. I still have one question: I would like to render the
movie in a script, what is the correct rendering name for the
TachyonL-Optix internal renderer? I am using the trajectory_movie script
from the script library as a starting point. Also, can I run VMD in
non-graphics mode but still resize the display/render the scene?
