[Chimera-users] making a movie problem

Hi Jasminka,

   That is very strange.  Are you using the Chimera movie command or a 
Chimera movie recording dialog?  It is likely that the problem is caused 
by a graphics driver bug.  If you are using the movie command try using 
the movie record option "supersample 3" or "supersample 1".  This will 
save the images using an off-screen buffer and it can't possibly get the 
menus and command-line in the image.  The "supersample 0" setting 
captures images directly from the screen.  That should not include menus 
or command-line but some graphics driver bug is probably causing that.  
In the Chimera 1.6 production release supersample 0 is the default for 
the movie record command while in daily builds the default is supersample 1.

   For more help you should use Chimera menu Help / Report a Bug....  
That way we will know your exact Chimera version, operating system 
version, graphics driver version, graphics card, ... all the relevant 
system info that might help solve your problem.
