embedded Python Molecular Viewer (ePMV) runs free molecular modeling software directly inside of professional 3D animation applications (hosts) to provide simultaneous access to the capabilities of these newly connected systems. Uniting host and molecular toolkit functionalities into a single interface, allows illustrators to quickly create common representations of molecular models and to perform computational simulations, like molecular dynamics, directly inside of a host’s viewport with relative ease.
Available free at http://epmv.scripps.edu, ePMV currently supports Blender, Cinema4D, Maya, 3D Studio Max & SoftImage
You have a ribbon model of the protein Crambin (PDB ID code 1crn)
See all of the atoms in the PDB file with their canonical IUPAC colors
Click & drag upper right viewport icons to rotate camera, pan, zoom, etc. (use standard tools for other hosts)Turn Atoms on and off as you explore to compare to the underlying ribbon.
