[Chimera-users] Chimera morph map multiple volumes

Thanks a lot Elaine. The command line seems to work, but the gui does have
nice features! This part is rather confusing

" If the number of frames and step increment are more than needed to reach
the playRange bounds (default is the entire range: 0.0,1.0), the morph
display will “bounce” back and forth."

So I wonder how to play the morph back and forth similar to the gui, and
actually, how to only play the morph in a single direction, but from the
gui. I also wonder if there's a quick record option similar to the gui, or
do I have to use movie encode? It would also help if I can find the log of
how all these gui commands are passed to chimera so I can customize it and
use it for  the command line interface.
