[Chimera-users] Drawing arrows without using .bild file

Dear all,

I'm trying to make a script that draws an arrow on every atom and every
frame during a trajectory using the MD movie. Right now, the script creates
a .bild file to draw the arrows, but it is not a very good approach since
it is creating a new file for every frame of the trajectory. I was
wondering if there's a way to do the same thing without having to create
the .bild file.

I already checked the "shape" command but you can´t use it to draw an
arrow. Maybe I should make a combination between a cylinder and a rectangle
to draw an arrow? Is there any other easy way to do that?

Thanks in advance. Kind regards,
