Hi Sharyn,

If you want to try something still in the development stages, the ISOLDE plugin to ChimeraX (our next generation Chimera program) reads MTZ files.  You would install the ChimeraX daily build, run it and use Tools / More Tools… to get the ISOLDE plugin developed by Tristan Croll at University of Cambridge.  It only works on Linux and Mac.  Keep in mind that ChimeraX does not have a lot of the Chimera features — check out the ChimeraX web site to see if it might be useful to you.  Here is some info on ISOLDE
