[Chimera-users] binned color ranges for scolor?

Hi Oliver,
Yes, but only by doing it sort of manually, i.e., by giving the same color twice at the lower and upper bounds of the bin.  For example, to color red up to .19999, blue .2-.29999, yellow .3 and up:

scolor #0 volume #1 cmap .19999,red:.2,blue:.29999,blue:.3,yellow


I hope this helps,
