[Chimera-users] Can't open large .bild files

Hi all,

I would like to visualize in Chimera the orientations from some 
angdist.bild files output from relion. I am able to open some .bild 
files (up to ~5.6MB in size) but I get "not responding" from Chimera 
when I try to open .bild files ~10-70MB (lots of particles and high 
angular sampling). I tried on a machine with more RAM but it was the 
same. Any hints about how to open these or is it just not possible?

Best wishes
