[Chimera-users] Interpolate colors in Morph after Color zone

Hi David,
It may be that you need to color-zone the morph map (not just the input maps), and there is an example in this previous post:


See the first attachment, which is just a short Chimera command script (plain text) despite the mail-system changing its name to something.obj.   The second attachment is the resulting movie.

I hope this helps,

I did so with color zone and got a nice result for all the intermediate states. However as soon as I start morphing the color is gone even though interpolate colors is on. Is there are trick to achieve that? I tried segmenting the map and then interpolating through the segmented maps which works in principle fine but I don’t really like the edge that is created by the segmentation.
