[Chimera-users] POV-Ray setting for movie making

I am using chimera alpha version 1.3 (build 2577) running in linux (sled11)
to make a movie using POV-Ray.


The quality of the first few frames is stunning but thereafter becomes fuzzy
around the edges of the molecule.  Is there a way to fix this so that the
entire movie is as clear and nice as the first few frames?  Is there
something wrong with my settings?  Is what I'm seeing an artifact of mpeg


I am using the following POV-Ray settings to make an Mpeg1 movie


Quality 11

Antialias: true

Antialias method: recursive

Antialias depth: 3

Antialias threshold: 0.3

Jitter: True

Jitter amount: 1.0

Transparent background: false

Wait for POV-Ray to finish false

Keep input files: false


Thanks for the help!!
