Looking at your trajectory

Before analyzing your trajectory it is often informative to look at your trajectory first. GROMACS comes with a simple trajectory viewer gmx view; the advantage with this one is that it does not require OpenGL, which usually isn’t present on e.g. supercomputers. It is also possible to generate a hard-copy in Encapsulated Postscript format (see Fig. 50). If you want a faster and more fancy viewer there are several programs that can read the GROMACS trajectory formats – have a look at our webpage for updated links.
