How to use AtomEye to show LAMMPS' dumped cfg file

Hello All.
Now I use AtomEye to deal with the LAMMPS’ dumped cfg file. I find a beautiful image,

Is there anyone who know to show cfg file like that?
The cfg file link:

Thanks All.

The one who created the image for sure :wink:
You are sort of pushing your luck here by asking and Atomeye Q in a Lammps
forum.
The best answer (if not advanced later by some kind user in this forum) is
probably found by reading the Atomeye documentation.
The image probably plots atoms colored-coded based on a central-symmetry
parameter or perhaps on some stress-based coloring scheme.

i can't speak for atomeye specifically, but have some experience doing
visualizations with VMD and other viz programs. so the following are
some general recommendation.

almost always the way to get spectacular looking images requires some
exercise and practice with the viz tool. and almost always such
visualizations are built in stages (similar to how you plan and setup
a simulation): you define a coloring scheme, pick surface properties
of the visualized atoms and define some selection criteria that picks
the atoms to show. with advanced viz tools, you can also "compose" a
complex visualization through combining multiple individual
representations of subsets of the data.

so you should follow carlos' advice and look through the
documentation, but also search for some tutorials on how to apply each
of the steps listed and then combine them for a more complex
visualization. probably the hardest part is, that for effective
visualizations you need some imagination and inspiration.

Dear Liu,

in fact, for this case the representation you want may be obtained as simple as pressing Meta+h (Alt+h): http://li.mit.edu/Archive/Graphics/A/#central_symm_coloring

It is the central symmetry coloring. You can test it by downloading the .cfg file following the link on Gallery page (under the image).

You may also want to take a look at "make invisible" feature of AtomEye, it may be convenient in similar cases: http://li.mit.edu/Archive/Graphics/A/#make_atoms_invisible

Dear Oleg,
Thanks you all. I understand, and have a try, and succeed.
Thx.
PS:
If I want to dump this command’s
compute csp all centro/atom fcc
output info, I can just write like this?
dump 1 all cfg 100 dump.*.cfg mass type xsu ysu zsu fx fy fz c_csp
Best Regards from China.

I think you can. It is always good to make a try yourself.

Dear Carlos,
Thank you for your sincerely help.
You are right, What I want is to show the dislocation or defect by CSP method. (My English is not good). I found some similar images in many papers, I want to redraw it.
Thx.

Dear Carlos,

Glad it helped.

(My English is not good).

No worries about your English (although you try to improve it because this
is for sure the chosen world-language to do business, science, etc).
My Cantonese/Mandarin skills are close to none and I better start working
on them because if China gets to solve its water and pollution problems, no
doubt you guys are going to be running this planet in the XXI century just
like the US (don't like to say America because America is much more than
the States) had done it in the XX one.

敬爱的Carlos:
Dear Carlos,
首先感谢您的回信。
First, Thanks for your reply,
你会说广东话或者普通话?如果,你应该可以看得懂汉字。
You can speak Cantonese/Mandarin? And then you understand these as follows:
我是一在校学生,我在学习MD和LAMMPS,对一个刚刚接触新东西的人而言,这个还是有点难度的,所以我也在慢慢摸索。
I am a student in School, learning MD and LAMMPS, and I am a green-hand user of LAMMPS, so it is a little difficult for me, I am trying my best.
谢谢您!祝好。
Thanks. Best regards.
