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

Elaine is right.  The morph map “interpolate colors” option only handles the case where the maps have a single color.  If the maps have multiple colors the morphing is not smart enough to know how the color should be applied to interpolated maps since the interpolation is just linear interpolation of the density values point-wise followed by computing a new contour surface.  If you have a structure fit into the maps you can morph the structure with the “Morph Confomations” tool.  Then morph both the atomic structure and map at the same time, and color the map to match the structure using color zone to get your domain coloring — the structure does not need to be shown.

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.
