[Chimera-users] Export morph confirmation scene to 3D Studio Max

Exporting per-frame command and getting one OBJ file for each frame would
work but I've tried without success.

In this case I want to export an already complete morph confirmation scene
loaded as a separate (and only) model in MD Movie with 31 frames to
individual wavefront OBJ files.

>From MD movie where the model is assembled I can select per-frame and
select define script, I've tried using the examples and rewriting them to
the best of my ability without success. I don't want it to do anything
except export each frame from the MD movie setup in OBJ format. What should
I write?


I appreciate the help, Edel
