Hi Ben,

   With a command you can flip through planes 40-80, perpendicular to 
the x axis, in volumes #0 and #1 using

volume #0,1 planes x,40,80

This advances the planes for each data set simultaneously.  You could 
record a movie of this using the movie command.

   There is not a way to do this with the volume dialog slider in the 
planes panel.  That only changes one data set.

   In either case there is the problem that Chimera will not blend the 
two planes even if each is transparent.  Older versions of Chimera could 
do the blending, specifically intended for multi-wavelength optical 
microscopy.  I removed that code about a year ago because it made 
development of new features for the majority of Chimera users who do not 
have multi-wavelength data more difficult.  I'll think about whether 
there is a simpler way to provide blending and show matching planes.
