[Chimera-users] surface texture export

Hi Laura Lynn,

   If you use Chimera menu entry File / Export Scene... and choose file 
type VRML then the exported VRML file will contain per-vertex Coulombic 
coloring.  I know this because I can read that VRML file back into 
Chimera and it shows the correct red, white and blue colors.  I'm not 
sure whether it will be possible to get that into the "3D program" you 
want to use the surface in.

   I'm not sure what it means to export a JPG texture.  To apply such a 
texture you would need texture coordinates on the surface. Chimera does 
not export textures or texture coordinates.
