I am revisiting the problem of warping the fisheye camera so I can use chimera interactively in the dome which will be useful for research applications. 

Having gone through the warp code from Blender, I am contemplating how best to make the transfer into chimera. 

I am thinking the best insert would be the truncated dome camera option.  

I got word that Sriram Subramaniam & NLM are planning to replicate my dome at NIH, and CMU put in a facility last week. 

Want to make chimera the primary tool for their dome viz, so I would like to eventually get this into the distribution.

Any suggestions on how to do this?  Will involve C code.  May need some help understanding the openGL calls in chimera.

Realize you are moving to chimera2, want to make this as quick and easy for everybody.
