[Chimera-users] morph problem

Dear Chimera Users,
I am trying to morph the complex1 and complex2 from the same system
(protein-RNA) to make a video monitoring the conformational changes.
As complex 1 is missing one domain and a helix (not visible in the
crystal structure), I need to remove these parts in complex 2 to have an
equal number of atoms in both complex and could morph it.
The resulting video is not so nice because shows the gaps corresponding
to the missing part. So, to avoid that, I have modelled the missing part
in the complex 1 to have the same atoms, and afer morph it again to make
the video, but this is not working.
In the transition between complex 1 and complex 2, the RNA encounter one
helix on the way that needs to move out to let the RNA to get the
position observed in complex 2. If I take out this helix, the video can
perfectly be done, but still is not perfect because show gaps.
Anybody could give an idea in how to solve the problem? We need the
video to include in a publication,.
Thanks in advance,
