[Chimera-users] cannot interpolate models: underlying C++ Atom object is missing

Hi Tamara,
We would need more information to understand what happened.  It would  
be great if you could use "Help... Report a Bug" in the Chimera menu,  
which will include stuff like Chimera version automatically, but it  
would be additionally helpful if you added your own description of the  
steps leading up to the problem and attached a session with the two  
structures used as input to morphing.

Then, if that is enough information to figure out what happened, and  
you include your email address on the bug report, we could tell you  
about any workaround, if it exists.

My only suggestion at this point is to try morphing without  
minimization, and/or if you had deleted any atoms from the structures,  
reopening the structures and trying morphing again without deleting  
any atoms.
