Dear Professor,

   Thanks so much. I am the first time to use Chimera so I am sorry that if my questions seem to be too simple...  Sorry that I didn't describe my question clearly in last post.
I had got the figure of 20 frames which are colored by using the command "rainbow models red, blue". Then I saved the figure with the file name a.png. Now I'd like to use the color range to denote each frame in the paper, e.g. color range from red to blue gradual changes corresponds to colors used by model 1 to 20 in the saved figure. Since I don't know what is the name it is should be called in English language, I send you an example in the attachment.

Many thanks.
