[Chimera-users] Shadows

I just updated my Chimera installation to 1.4.1 (Mac OSX aqua), and I noticed that for some reason shadows are not so nicely rendered in standard 3x3 super-sampled output.  They look very blocky, much as they always have done in the viewer. In version 1.4 I always got very nice shadows when I saved an image. I am trying to save images of an isosurface view of a 3D reconstruction. Is there a setting I need to adjust to get high quality shadows back again?

Many thanks,
