Hi again Rita

Took the freedom to re-send your answer to vmd mailing list, for others
to read.

Offline you told me that you want to save a pdb file from a trajectory
that you
obtained, in order to begin a new simulation (in AMBER) using that pdb as the
template, that's it?

I guess that your trajectory was produced with AMBER. So there's no
problem for
VMD to read the data.
Once you have loaded the data into VMD (you will need a parm and crd
file), you
can save a specific frame from the trajectory in pdb format easily. First
choose the molecule in the VMD main window (just click once with the mouse),
then File/Save coordinates.
There, you can choose the output file type (PDB in your case), as well as the
frame to save Just a remark. The first frame of a trajectory inside VMD is 0.
So if you want frame 50 to be saved, *first* variable == *last* == 49. Do not
worry with the stride (== frame step) var.

Hope this sheds some light to your question.
Feel free if this is not the expected answer.

P.S. Brasileira? Pelo alo, tem que ser ! ;-)
