I am trying to make a movie with rasmomvie. I generated a sequence of xyz files called test*, using the option:

xyz test

then a moved a copy of rasmolmovie to my working directory and ran it as,

csh rasmolmovie test

but the only ouput i get is a bunch of black (jmol) screens, and the following,
Generating view for direction -z
Converting test to /tmp/10269test-z.gif
convert.im6: unable to open image `/tmp/10269test-z.gif': No such file or directory @ error/blob.c/OpenBlob/2638.
convert.im6: no images defined `animation-z.gif' @ error/convert.c/ConvertImageCommand/3044.
The animation for view -z is in animation-z.gif

and so on for all the other directions. I was wondering If anyone would happen to know how to fix this?

Did you follow the instructions contained in the rasmolmovie README file and install the required software?

Given an ordered list of files contanining molecular coordinates
in XYZ format, this simple shell script generates an animated
gif for each of the six possible views down a Cartesian axis.

It uses the free utilities
  - rasmol 
    to manipulate the molecule and generate the individual frames
  - convert from ImageMagick 
    to combine the frames into an animated gif

It should be easy to modify the script to other file formats
or animation tools.
