Hi Matt,

   There is no Chimera command to set the camera.  But there are 
commands to orient and position the displayed models precisely (turn, 
move, scale, cofr, clip, savepos, reset).  The Chimera world keeps the 
camera fixed and moves the models.  If you want to use Euler angles 
there is a plugin to do that called Transform Molecule Coordinates 
available at:
