[Chimera-users] Scene transition is delayed in chimera animation

Hi Shanti Pal,
If you are using the Animation tool, the way to make transitions faster is to put the scenes closer together on the timeline.  Other than that I have no specific answer given this limited information.  The Animation tool is meant to be simple, so you don't have control over everything.  If you create your own Chimera command movie script instead of using the Animation tool, then you have detailed control over nearly everything, but it is more work and requires learning the commands.  There are several example Chimera command movie scripts, see the "making movies" page and links therein;


I hope this helps,

What I observe is that the scene transitions from 1 scene to another is extremely slow and not continuous also. For some scenes it is fast as well. How can I keep this transition minimum and fixed to all scenes to make a continuous animation.
