[Chimera-users] Constraining map-to-map fitting based on symmetry?

Hi Oliver,
My suggestion for using “measure correlation” only handled rotations about the axis, not translations along the axis. I’ve added a feature request for fitting using just these 2 degrees of freedom.
http://plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/trac/chimera/ticket/13829 <http://plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/trac/chimera/ticket/13829>
I think it is not that uncommon a case. But we are working hard on Chimera 2 so I don’t think this will be added soon. Thanks for the suggestion.

This doesn’t report the maximum correlation position but you could find the maximum in the tabulated values in the reply log.
