Hi Francesco,
What you call parallel-eye we call "wall-eye" stereo.

As mentioned in the "Image Tips" page, near the bottom:

Wall-eye, cross-eye, and red-cyan stereo images can be saved by changing the graphics window to the corresponding camera mode with the Camera tool (or the command "stereo") and using the "same as screen" Image type in the Save Image dialog.

In other words, you could use command "stereo wall" to go to walleye and "stereo mono" to go back to normal in the Chimera window, or do the same things with the "camera mode" setting in the Camera tool (in menu under Tools... Viewing Controls). The default "Image type" in the Save Image dialog is already "same as screen".

I hope this helps,
