[Chimera-users] rotation centers

I have a set of density maps and PDB models. I have displayed the maps 
side by side. Each map has a pdb model docked in it. I would like to 
make a movie where each map rotates around its Z axis. Each pdb should 
rotate around the Z axis of its respective map.
I tried:
set independent
roll z

The problem is that the center of the pdb models is not the same as the 
center of their respective maps. Is there a way to group one pdb with 
one map so that they rotate around the same center? Or is it possible to 
set the center of rotation of a PDB to the same value as the center of 
rotation of the map?

Thanks in advance
