Hi, everyone,

I have been using to prepare my files, and everything went on fine until recently. Simply put, nebmake didnt interpolate good intermediate images any more.

# image 00: POSCAR
0.6205393683339545 0.3748186251700154 0.6113134379103631 T T T
0.4407191996091184 0.3753464715751533 0.6109833865746312 T T T

#image 02: POSCAR
0.6205250119801456 0.8749946587628363 0.6126018270732655 T T T
0.4404841117364926 0.8751503266829158 0.6121692792622382 T T T

But by keying in 00/POSCAR 02/POSCAR 1, i got 01POSCAR as
0.6205321901570500 0.1249066419664260 0.6119576324918160 T T T
0.4406016556728080 0.6252483991290350 0.6115763329184321 T T T

It seems that y values are not correct, but i cannot pinpoint where things went wrong. They are not so close to the edge of the box!
Help! I am using vtst-scripts947

I am attaching the files, and many thanks

The script is working as it should. The issue is that you are moving almost exactly 1/2 way across the box in the y-direction between images 0 and 2. In our script, we find the shortest path between the initial and final states relative to the periodic boundary conditions. For the first atom, it is slightly shorter to go along +y but for the second, it is closer along -y. If you just move the molecule a little closer between the 00 and 02 images, then it will interpolate as you expect it to.
