Don't use -timestep.  Just -skip will do for what you want.

Subject: [gmx-users] Trjconv: reducing frames and Time issue

Hello All,

I have a xtc file and I used trjconv on it to reduce the number of frames 

trjconv -f original.xtc -o reduced-frames.xtc -s xx.tpr  -timestep 20 -fit
rot+trans -skip 2 -center no

Now I have two  xtc files for a 10ns simulation:

I did gmxcheck to check the number of frames and time (I will show  the
results for both below). The problem is: the number of frames is reduced
by half however the time shown on the reducedframes.xtc is increased!!
(from 10 000 ps to 100 000 ps).. I cant understand what this means? I did
a g-cluster analysis and they r saying I did a 100 000ps simulation which
it not true! can anyone explain this to me?
