Hi Matthias,

  I'm not clear on what your goal is.  You talk about embedding molecule models in PDF, in Latex and in HTML.

  Conrad Huang in our lab added Collada export to Chimera so that molecular models could be dropped into some ebook format but I'm not sure if that format was PDF or something else.  Have to find out from him.  We are also working on displaying 3d views of molecules in a web browser using WebGL and Chimera can export an html file for that.  Those files tend to be large and you need a web browser that supports WebGL to view them.  The Collada and HTML export are under Chimera menu entry File / Export….  The Collada export is in Chimera daily builds and HTML export is in Chimera 1.8.

You were already discussing a similar topic in http://plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/pipermail/chimera-users/2008-May/002663.html The question in the topic was whether its possible to incorporate mesh-data (via programs like MeshLab, Photoshop and the movie15 package) into .tex files.
