I see a related question in the list (OBJ rendering with multiple colors and transparency); I think my question is related but somehow "easier to solve":

When I export a view that consists in a molecule with the electron density as wireframe, the resulting object is wrong, with the electron density not fitting the atoms (as I do see correctly on screen in VMD).

What's strange is that if I render the electron density with a solid surface instead of wireframe, it does fit correctly. Hence I guess there's just some small bug when exporting wireframes?

Also the exported color is wrong for wireframe but correct for solid surface.

I experienced the same on VMD 1.9.2 in Linux and 1.9.3 in Windows.

If not a bug, what may I be doing wrong? Thanks,
