The movie images including the command-line is very weird -- never
heard of that happening before. It is almost certainly a graphics
driver problem. You can try a Chimera daily build which uses a
different image capture method. Also you can report the bug with the
version you are using Chimera menu entry Help / Report a Bug.... That
will give us information about your graphics card and driver that may
help us advise you further.
