[Chimera-users] problem saving images

Black saved images from Chimera almost always means your system graphics driver is buggy and updating the graphics driver is the solution.  Sometimes saving images with no supersampling (1x1) works for such drivers.  But movie recording uses no supersampling by default so if your movies are black then that probably will not help.
