That site is just too cool!  Even though I am a longs way from being some kind of chemistry nut, this is awesome!   :Thmbsup:

thanks for sharing!

P.S.  I do not know of a way to get it into Powerpoint.

Frame the area in a screen recorder and save it as a video.

You may be better off getting the app itself from here:

http://jmol.sourceforge.net/

http://jmol.sourceforge.net/download/

That way you have a better chance of capturing a really nice quality animation.

you cannot "capture" it; it is a script. You can "run" a script. In Java. But you wanted to show it in Powerpoint, and PowerPoint doesn't recognize or support Java applets or Java scripts. Jmol won't do you any good in this situation. The only choice left is to record the area as a video animation. Google "capture screen +video", or something alike.
