I have been wrecking my mind in trying to use the "Transform coordinates"
tool to apply a rotation to a PDB file based on Euler angles taken from
IMP. I focused my problem to the following :
According to IMP, they use the ZXZ notation in the original (lab)
According to my understanding of the chimera docs, you use ZXZ in the self
(rotating) coordinate system.
I have been trying to convert between those two using a python library I
found on the net but keep on getting results that either show I'm missing
something or a bug in somewhere. (It's called transformations.py by
Are you aware of any issues or similar problems? I saw somewhere that
someone mentioned a similar problem that was due to PDB header file with
weird axis origin, but i wasn't able to get any more info.
Will be thankful for any hint,
