Hi Bala,
If you are having a problem, it helps to say what version of Chimera  
you are using.

There was a bug in 1.4 (daily builds) where the 2D labels were  
missing from the image, but that was fixed 3 weeks ago -- so I would  
suggest either using a more recent daily build, or using the  
production release, 1.3.

As for the raytracing progress, I once had a similar observation when  
the "pov-ray option" to show preview was true, and in that case it  
was actually finished, but the progress bar didn't move until after I  
closed the preview.  I don't know if that is the same issue you are  
seeing.  If that is not the problem, you could try using "Help...  
Report a Bug" in the Chimera menu to send a bug report.

I hope this helps,
