[Chimera-users] "newmap" command? (Or other way to resample on arbitrary grid?)

Hi Oliver,

 You can resample a map with a different grid spacing using the Volume Viewer dialog menu Features / Subregion Selection, enable “Rotate selection box, sample at voxel size S”,
set the voxel size to the grid spacing you want, middle click outside the volume to show a box around the entire map, then press Crop.

 Unfortunately the "vop resample” command won’t do this.  The natural way would be to specify a non-integer value for the gridStep parameter, but it won’t accept that.  I looked at the code and it would require too many changes with too big a chance of breaking other code to quickly add that.  So it won’t happen until Chimera 2.

Does this command still exist somewhere under a different name? Or is there another way to accomplish this?
