Hello Stefano,

Please use chimera's Help / Report a Bug dialog to report this bug so we 
will have a record of what graphics card and driver you're using, so we 
can try to reproduce the bug locally.  Next, update your graphics driver 
to the latest version.  With the information in your bug report, I can 
help you with that if need be.  Chances are that the problem will 
disappear with a newer graphics driver, but maybe there's a code path in 
the movie making code that needs to be fixed.

 	- Greg
