[Chimera-users] vrml lighting

I have a multiple vrml models that vary by scale. 1, 10 & 100

I notice the lighting significantly drops off as the scale increases.

When I have another model, say PDB, that is in approximate relation (ie, viewable in regards to the volume size similar to the vrml files volumes); the PDB file looks good regardless of size (eg, tRNA or ribosome).

I can increase the brightness to compensate (10-20) but it washes out the PDB models when brightness goes beyond 2.

is the lighting handled differently between these different types of models?
