[Chimera-users] per-model clipping plane

Hi Jean-Francois,

   There is not yet a command specifically to move per-model clip 
planes.  But you can do it using the "savepos" and "reset" commands. 
These save and restore the positions of all models and the per-model 
clip plane positions (Chimera 1.2352 and newer).

   For example, you can save an initial position with command

	savepos p1

then move a per-model clip plane with the mouse to a new position and 
save that

	savepos p2

then to smoothly go from position p1 to p2 over 100 frames use

	reset p1
	reset p2 100

   The named positions are saved in Chimera session files.

   Saving of per-model clip positions when you use savepos was added 
very recently (March 1, 2007) so you need Chimera snapshot version 
1.2352 or newer.  Formerly just the model orientations were remembered.
