[Chimera-users] About Morph Conformations

Chimera morphing is limited to fairly similar models.  The first thing 
it tries to do is identify the equivalent atoms from both models.  When 
there are unequal number of chains in the models, it is not smart enough 
to figure out which is the extra chain.  A workaround might be to create 
a copy of 3VBS, delete the chain from 3BVS, and morph between the copy 
and 3VBU.  The shortened copy of 3VBS must be an open model, but it does 
not need to be displayed.
