[Chimera-users] command question

Hi Yanhe,
(1) when you want commands to execute simultaneously, just put them together with semicolons and no wait between them.  E.g. something like:  

volume #0 planes z,0,50,1; turn y 1 50; wait 50

Command file rules and tips:

(2) you cannot merge 3 volumes into one volume with each one keeping its own different threshold, sorry.  You can combine maps in several different ways (add, subtract, maximum, minimum, etc. as with "vop" command) but the merged result is one map. One map can have multiple thresholds but they would all apply to the whole map.


I hope this helps,
