Re^2: Probably a bug in build #7181 or problem with parameters

Thank you Alex for info.
Actually, i thought semidirrect transformation is default option and removed it from the input file.

So with CASSCF - no problem. With XMCQDPT i setup kstate(1)=1,1,1 and wstate(1)=1,1,0 avecoe(1)=1,1,0. Below you will find last part of my output file.

>>We have polyene chain with phenyl rings from both sides. Problem: construct active space to describe most intense transition (first excited state). From CIS we can see that most intense transition will be 1st state (CIS reference) which consist of:

>>MO#129 is HOMO

>>Can we make any deassign about active space? I mean, what would be the best strategy to use NATURAL CIS ORBITALS or consider DFT orbitals that have better agreement with experiment than CIS. I already tried to put all pi orbitals from the chain into active space( 122,123,124,127,128,129) after reordering. In all cases i used 2 virtual orbitals. If we want to get only HOMO->LUMO transition do we need to worry about another transitions, since they also contribute to formation of the 1st excited state. After unsuccessful attempts i decided to check smallest active space and got small problem ( see above).
