[Chimera-users] capping surface with a VRML model

Hi Damien,

   Chimera cannot cap clipped VRML surfaces. It also can't change the 
coloring or transparency of VRML surfaces. VRML surfaces are different 
from all other surfaces in Chimera.

   Why not just save the Chimera session with the multiscale model 
surface?  Then you can reopen it and clip and cap as you wish.
