Hi Andy,

  Here is a Chimera command script to make a movie that rotates the 
displayed models 360 degrees in 3 degree increments (120 frames) and 
writes the movie in Quicktime format (*.mov).

movie record
turn y 3 120
wait 120
movie stop
movie encode output /tmp/movie.mov mformat mov bitrate 6000

Put this in a file with suffix *.cmd (e.g. spin.cmd) and open it with 
Chimera File / Open... or the open command to create the movie.
