Hi Pranav,

  Not sure about ChimeraX but in Chimera you can use 'colorkey' command line:

colorkey x1,y1 x2,y2 value1 color1 value2 color2....

colorkey 0.1,0.1 0.11,0.5 3.0 blue 4.0 cyan 5.0 green 6.0 yellow 7.0 orange 8.0 red

You can use the colors and their values from the output of local resolution map.

Subject: [Chimera-users] color key in chimera X

I have a isosurface rendering that I have colored by radius as well as
local resolution. I want to now place a colour key in the image to
indicate the relevance of the colors. Is there a way to achieve this
in ChimeraX? If not, is there a way to easily port the commands to
