[Chimera-users] Using marker files to place oriented density maps inside a tomogram

Hi,

I'd like to use a Chimera marker file to place multiple copies of a  
density map in different spatial positions inside a tomogram. My input  
is thus a single map file a set of 3d locations, each attached to an  
euler triplet (or a rotation matrix)

With the documentation I could find

http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/1.2065/docs/ContributedSoftware/volumepathtracer/volumepathtracer.html

it is explained how to place spheres without orientation in a volume,  
but I was not able to figure out how to place a density map at those  
locations, and also how to impart a different orientation to the  
density map located at each position.

My question is: where could I find a description of the marker file  
syntax that describes this functionality?

thanks,
Daniel
