[chimera-dev] frame number/scaling

Here's how to get the current frame number for a movie recording, and the path to the image for that frame using Python

>>> import MovieRecorder
>>> d = MovieRecorder.getDirector()
>>> d.getFrameCount()
>>> d.recorder.image_path(19)

There is no way to scale a VRML model in Chimera.  In general Chimera has very limited support for VRML (cannot recolor, cannot select individual objects in the VRML, cannot delete parts of the VRML, cannot change transparency, cannot scale).
