Hi Emma,

Although the answer is no, you can't do it with the current version of 
chimera, it would be possible.  There are issues of how to do the color 
blending (i.e., which color space) and how big the transition area should 
be.  I'll file it as a bug and you'll get email when we fix it (may be a 
long while though).
