You can make selections out of your molecule.

Make a selection with no water.

E. g. In graphics > Representation


all and not waters

Instead of just


VMD will know what waters are and will draw everything that is not a water

Hopefully this will work.

Hi list,

I have a mdcrd file with a protein and a lot of water molecules. I want to
hide the water to see how the protein folds. However, I can only find
tutorials for removing water in pdb. Does anyone know how to hide water in
mdcrd file?
