[Chimera-users] mrc opaque faces

I have problem looking at maps in mrc format calculated with IMOD. In
mesh or surface style, when I move "level" towards lower value, the
outer faces of the volume gradually become opaque. When I set the level
to the minimum I see a smooth rectangular parallelepiped. I can then
zoom in and have the camera inside the parallelepiped. With these
settings, no density is visible inside the parallelepiped, only its
faces are visible. 
In 3dmod I checked the edges of the map: they have a variable density,
and they are not all black, or all white.

Has anybody got a clue of what's going wrong?
