Hi Trent,

   Unfortunately many Chimera capabilities do not have equivalent 
commands, though we are working on adding more commands.  The multiscale 
tool and scene export as vrml cannot be done with Chimera commands.  But 
all the capabilities are available with Python scripts.  Attached is a 
Python script to export a batch of PDB files in a directory as VRML or 
OBJ.  For OBJ format you'll need to download the Export OBJ plug-in that 
I just added to the Chimera experimental features web page:


To use the script, edit the line near the bottom to set directory for 
the PDB files.  Then use Chimera File / Open... to open it.  It will 
create the vrml or obj files in the same directory.  I tried in with the 
latest Chimera production release 1.2470.
