[Chimera-users] superimposing an all-atom structure to a reduced one

Dear all,

I have two instances of the same protein. One is the original pdb 
structure which has been locally deformed and saved as the second pdb 

I would like to match the 2 pdb structures. However, one structure is a 
reduced version of the other in that it contains only the carbon-alpha 
trace plus one or two atoms of the side chain.

I get an error message when I use MatchMatcher. What can I do to 
superimpose the all-atom structure onto the reduced one?

Many thanks for your help!


ps: I can join the two pdb structures if necessary
