[Chimera-users] saving with angles

Hi Tom,

I am currently exploring sample heterogeneity using tomographic approach 
on single particles. Because of the tomography I have a missing cone in 
the angular information, so my structures are distorted in the Z 
direction. To obtain a reasonable structure I have to average the 
similar structures and I want to do it in IMAGIC. My thought is to 
average the projections of several structures in the same direction and 
rebuild the model. Therefore I need to align the different starting 
density maps in rotation and translation also. Since this feature is not 
working very well in IMAGIC I would like to use Chimera, but I need the 
transformation values (angles and shifts) after the fitting, to apply it 
on the density maps. It would also help me a lot if you tell me how I 
can obtain these informations!
Thanks in advance!
