[Chimera-users] Using Chimera from non-chimera python scripts

I would like to use Chimera python classes from a python script running
outside Chimera (part of a larger python project).
I saw another post that explained that this could be done but I was unclear
which of the Chimera functionality can be used
in this case. In case I want to create an image (e.g. load pdb files, do
some editing and then create an image to a file) - can I use
the "chimera" class or do I need to use something else? (I saw a reference
to "midas" classes)

Is there an example for doing that? Processing a file and creating an image
in a non-GUI scenario running outside chimera?

Thank you,
