How to keep a trajectory fixed at the center?


I am using OVITO to visualize some meshes. Due to periodic boundary conditions, my mesh moves out of the current view and I have to use the mouse a lot so that I can bring it back to the center of the window. I have many xyz coordinates, merged in a single *.xyz file. Is there a way to keep my mesh fixed in the center of the OVITO window? I want to save the animation with the centered mesh, so that it can be presented to other people. Do you have any recommendations?

Best regards,

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to realize this in OVITO Basic. However, in OVITO Pro, you have the capability to calculate the center of mass of the mesh. Following this, you can adjust the position of either the mesh vertices or the entire simulation cell using a Python modifier.

I see. Thank you for the quick reply!
