[Chimera-users] using different scale for 2 models

Hi Jean-Francois,
There is only one scale factor, and it applies to everything.   
However, you can "fake" a shrinking model by setting the clip planes  
very far apart, then moving one model very far away (assuming you  
have "perspective" turned on, which is the default).

For example, this series of commands:
   open 1gcn
   open 1zik
[that makes 1gcn model 0, 1zik model 1]
   thickness 10000
[that moves the clipping planes 10,000 A farther apart]
   ~select 0
[freezes 1gcn]
   move z -10 50
[that moves 1zik 10 A farther away 50x, a total of 500 A]

Fun, huh?
