[Chimera-users] 2D projections

Hi Ana,

   Do you want to project volume data or a surface?

   For volume data you can display a projection by using "solid" style 
rendering and set the transparency to 100% in the volume dialog 
brightness and transparency panel, and move the nodes on the volume 
histogram to create a linear ramp.  This just provides an on-screen 
image that looks like a projection.  Probably good to use orthographic 
projection too (menu Tools / Viewing Controls / Camera, projection -> 
orthographic) instead of perspective projection.

   Chimera is not able to create a 2d volume data sets which is the 
exact projection, but I'd like to add that.  It is on the Chimera 
request list (entry 58).
