Hi Jinghua,
If you are using the Chimera snapshot from March (1.2105),
you can get the advanced lighting options by just checking the
box marked "Advanced" on the Lighting tool.  The Lighting tool
can be opened by choosing from the menu: Tools... Viewing
Parameters... Lighting.  If you are using the previous version
(1.2065, December 2004) the same options are directly available
on the Lighting tool (no "Advanced" checkbox).

In either case, you can click the Help button on the Lighting
tool to get the manual page that goes with it.

The Lighting tool allows you to control the brightness, directions,
and colors of two lights.  Currently, there is no way to add more
lights.  I hope this helps!
