[Chimera-users] Flipping between alternate conformations (depiction/movie)

I was assuming you wanted to morph between the positions. If instead
you simply want to jump from one to the other, you can just use the
display command. For example, if both are shown then "~disp @.b"
would hide the B altlocs. Then you could switch with "disp @.b; ~disp
@.a" (the semicolon prevents display of the intermediate state with
both shown). You could include the residue number and chain ID in
these commands, for example :335.a at .b refers to altloc B atoms of
residue 335 in chain A.
