More information

CCP4MG can represent molecules in a large variety of ways. There is an emphasis on ease of use, but there are also many options for changing the details of drawing styles. Electron density may be represented as chickenwire, solid surface and chickenwire composed of cylinders. Molecular graphics movies are created by making many screenshots with one screenshot being equivalent to one frame of the movie. The screenshots are then compiled together into one movie file.
