Does anyone know what software or website allows viewers to see rotation of orbitals in a molecule such as conrotatory and disrotatory directions? I'm not an expert in this field sorry. I tried VR Molecules and Chemsketch but they don't go deeper in the molecular orbitals. I am studying pericyclic reactions, that's why.

    $\begingroup$ Do not spend too much time identifying a program to visualize this like a movie. Use your two fists and observe the relative move (take the thumbs as an indicator). The closest example identified for a somewhat step-wise illustration (but lacking the orbitals) is a German tutorial already translated into English here. $\endgroup$
