Hi Jean-Paul,
You can do more than one at a time, for example

volume #8,9 transp .5
volume #8-9 transp .5

The problem is that you put a space in the model specification.  If  
you are not sure how to enter a command, it is better to try typing it  
in the command line before putting it into a script file.   If you  
entered the command as described in your mail, there would be a  
message something like "Unknown option "9"" to help you realize that  
it is typed wrong.  After you are sure your commands work, then you  
can worry about putting them in a file with "wait" and movie recording  

Also, if the data is not shown at the beginning, it might work to  
include a command like

volume #8-9 show
