In our early releases with direct POV-Ray image saving, the scale of
the result was different - the POV-Ray result was about 75% the scale
in Chimera, so you could see things around the edges you couldn't see
in Chimera. Is that what you mean?
This scaling difference has been fixed. The problem is still there
in 1.2352 but it is fixed in 1.2363. If this does sound like the
problem you were having, try getting snapshot 1.2363 or newer:
Also, a known current limitation is that things clipped away with the
global clipping planes in Chimera will still be included in the POV-
If it is a different problem, maybe we could understand better if you
send a Chimera session and the POV-Ray image file that came from it.
I hope this helps,
