[Chimera-users] How to clip surface using mclip

Hi Richard,

   Chimera has this problem of not providing a way to uniquely specify 
models that have the same id number.  Here's a tricky method to specify 
the surface and not the atoms when both a molecule and surface have 
model number 0.

	mclip "#0 & ~@"

> Dear Chimera Team and Users,
> I like to clip the surface of a model (but not the model itself) using the command mclip. Unfortunately, this command apparently is waiting for a model number and therefore works on the surface as well as the model itself.
> On the other hand, the interactive tool "Per Model Clipping" allows to clip the surface only. Because I like to use clipping in a movie, using the interactive interface is not an option. Does anybody know how this could be acomplished using the command line?
