Hi Elaine and Tom,
I found that if I turn off the silhouettes effect, it is good to rotate the maps smoothly in UCSF Chimera using M1 Mac!

Of course, we understand it takes more time to learn the commands than to use a graphical interface! If you just want to make a simple spin movie (one rotation), however, ChimeraX has an icon to do that with a single click.

>>> Hi ML,
>>> We do not have a Chimera version compiled for an Apple M1 processor. Did you mean Chimera is slow on the M1? (you said "old version is quite on M1 Mac" seemed to leave out an important word!) Others have reported the speed of Chimera / ChimeraX on M1 is comparable to Intel processor Macs.
>>> Chimera depends on 50 third party packages that would all need to be available for M1 to make a native Chimera version. We do not plan to attempt that. Our development work is all on our new program ChimeraX, only critical maintenance is done on Chimera. At some point in the future we will probably make a native M1 ChimeraX.
