[Chimera-users] solid threshold in a python script

Hi Ben,

  You can set multiple solid rendering thresholds with the volume command, for example,

	vol #0 style solid level .5,0 level 1.5,1

For solid style the level is two numbers, the first being the density map value and the second is from 0 to 1 indicating the brightness (and also opacity).  To specify more than one level you repeat the option.

Could anyone please give me a few pointers?
