[Chimera-users] depth cue by color for tomogram

Hello all,

I noticed a new sort of 3D color glasses (http://chromatek.com/) that work via blue-red chromatic aberration rather than shifted pairs. I think this would be a useful addition if it isn't available already somehow. The major advantage for a lecture situation is that 2D images are visible also without glasses.

I tried to encode depth by color in Chimera but was not successful. I'm using solid style with transparency to see "into" the tomogram, loaded in Volume Viewer. I'd like the deep features to be in one color and the higher parts another, with sparse regions relatively transparent. In the main Viewing panel there's an option for depth cue on the Effects tab, but the cueing is relative to the Side View orientation rather than the real depth. Also there seems to be no option for a color gradient.

thanks for any help,
