Example of how to create linked 3D animations/structures

First, edit the file viblist.js to contain the info needed for your molecule. You will need (i) its IR spectrum in JCamp (.jdx) format, (ii) its 3D molecule structure file (.mol or .pdb), (iii) the list of animated vibrations saved as individual (.xyz) files.

Then run this page again, loading the new viblist.js file for your molecule.

Select a vibrational mode from the list (from the ones contained in the file viblist.js):

Then enter the width of the peak

Click on 'Submit' to link that hot-spot with the chosen vibration .xyz file.

When you have finished all the hot-spots, click on 'Finish' to output the finished linking file (peaklinks.js). You can view the file using the program IRviewer.html (Note: you will have to edit this file to ensure it loads the correct new files that you've just created).
