Hi all

Is there any simple way to display elliptic molecules in VMD?

Lots of people doing modeling of liquid crystals with GB molecules and
plotting it in some software.

Is it VMD or something else? In case it is not VMD : what is that?

It is rather easy to plot them (ellipsoids) in Matlab, but it is
horribly slow for a periodic box of sensible size.
