[Chimera-users] Command line export to webgl

To export 3D data from chimera, you either (a) need a chimera window 
(can be minimized) or (b) need to use the headless version of chimera 
(only available for Linux).

On the command line, if you export to a file that is named with a .html 
suffix, it will use WebGL, e.g.,

export filename.html

 From Python:

     from chimera import exports
     exports.doCommand('WebGL', 'filename.html')

We still consider the WebGL support experimental, and it has problems 
with large structures, but please check it out.
