[Chimera-users] Stereo

I followed your suggestions and saved the image of a structure as a wall-eye stereo pair and a jpeg file.

I then opened the Jpeg file and there are two images of the structure and their centers are separated by about 8 inches (200 cm).  How do  I get the separation that will permit a stereo pair on a printed page that provides a 3D image as appears in many articles on structures.

Hi Arthur,
No, certainly not with Chimera, if you really meant a PDF file.

If you meant a structure that is open in Chimera (like from a PDB file), yes you can save it as a stereo image.  The File… Save Image dialog has “Image type” near the lower right with choices including:

same as screen
stereo pair
wall-eye stereo pair

You can either choose one of those “stereo pair” options, or make the screen show stereo (e.g. with “stereo” command ) and choose  “same as screen”.
I hope this helps,
