[Chimera-users] uneditable format

Hi Albert,

  The common approach to this is to provide a movie spinning the model around.  That isn’t as flexible for the viewer as using interactive 3d graphics, but the only 3d graphics viewer that everyone is likely to have is a web browser, and the WebGL export from Chimera is just a prototype (e.g. doesn’t handle transparency or lighting on mesh surfaces and other things).  Also if you were really concerned about someone getting your coordinates, those can be extracted from any 3d format including WebGL by someone dedicated willing to spend a day.  Probably that is safe enough and we hope to have WebGL output working in all cases in Chimera 2.

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?
