Hi Amutha,
	I assume you're talking about the situation where you have one PDB 
file for each "frame" of a trajectory (or a multi-MODEL PDB file of the 
trajectory), rather than a starting and ending PDB file that you want 
to "morph" between.  Either way, unfortunately, we don't currently 
support what you want.  However, now that you have pointed out the 
usefulness for plain-PDB support in Movie, I can probably add it in the 
not-too-distant future.  But given my other priorities (including 
support for attribute coloring that you mentioned earlier!) the 
"not-too-distant future" might still be a couple of months.  I'll send 
mail when there is at least a preliminary version available.
