[Chimera-users] same volume data values over the entire volume

     Trying to color a volume according to "volume data" I get the same 
numerical values for all colors and a speckled appearance. When using 
"volume data gradient norm" I get the expected colors, i.e. strong local 
changes of the volume data are red and spots where there is essentially 
no change are in blue. How is this possible? If I understand correctly, 
"volume data gradient norm" colors according to the first derivative of 
"volume data" or is this wrong?  Do I need something like a normalization?

Thanks a lot for explanations,

best, Dieter
