One of the limitations that of WebGL export is that it doesn’t appear to display transparency correctly.  Also it doesn’t appear to handle lighting of meshes instead the mesh appears uniformly bright.  Both of these mess up the mesh in you example images.

In particular the “WebGL” export can be viewed as a web page in most modern browsers, with the ability to manipulate the structure interactively.

Is it possible for us to export some special file format so that other users can only visualize my file, but they cannot edit or export file into PDB coordinate?
