Subject: chimera vrml issues...

Hi Tom,

I was trying out some of those new scene export functions in Chimera
that you showed me a while back, and I've been running into some
issues.  I've got a large ribbon structure that I wanted to export as
VRML, but Chimera only wrote a small file that couldn't be opened. 
Using notepad, all the file included was the following:

#VRML V2.0 utf8

Transform {
  children [

Saving as a X3d file seemed to work (seemed like a reasonable size at
10 MB) but I couldn't use the translator (X3dToVrml97.xslt) to change
to VRML since it appeared to run into memory issues.

Trying to save as POV or Renderman either failed or crashed Chimera.

Any suggestions?
