Hi chimerics,

I'm not very familiar (yet) to python scripting in chimera, so I am
trying to prepare a movie using just line commands in a file. I would
like to gradually increase the transparency of a model's surface that
has been colored in "rainbow by residue" style. My question is then: is
there a way to control the overall transparency of a surface from the
command line? I could resort to colordef commands at every step, but
this would make things very hard with the rainbow coloring...

Thanks a lot!

Miguel ( trying to learn more python in the meantime ;) )
