[Chimera-users] Write out frames, but the complete movie

That's a hard way to make the movie showing side by side rotating
models. Chimera can rotate each model about its own center using
"independent" center of rotation mode. Enable this with command "cofr
independent", move one model away from another "move x 20 model #1", and
rotate them "turn y 3 120" (3 degree steps, 120 steps).
Here's how to get movie frames if you still want to know. If you add
to your "movie encode" command the option "resetMode keep" then the
image files will not be deleted after encoding. To specify where to put
the image files use the "directory /tmp/images" option to the "movie
record" command, otherwise a temp directory is used and you won't be
able to find the images.
