Dear VMD experts,
This is regarding loading AMBER coordinates in VMD.As it is already known how to load AMBER trajectories in VMD (, myself, however, could not figure out how to load it in text mode for running some friendly analyses in VMD/TCL interface.
The topology file as well as the coordinate files seem to be unrecognized as follows:
vmd > mol new DM_4.topCould not determine file type for file '' from its extension.vmd > vmd > mol new DM_4_md0001.crdInfo) Using plugin crd for coordinates from file DM_4_md0001.crdERROR) Some frames from file 'DM_4_md0001.crd' could not be loadedERROR) because the number of atoms could not be determined.  Load aERROR) structure file first, then try loading this file again.
Any suggestions regarding the same will be deeply appreciated.
Thank you in advance,Sincere Regards,Prathit Chatterjee
