Hi Josh,
Most likely you just need to get a newer version of Chimera.  The transparency command was added in version 1.7, Jan 2013.  It would also be available in later versions (1.8 etc.).

If you use the Help menu in Chimera the documentation should match your downloaded software, but documentation on the Web might be for a different version of Chimera than what you downloaded.  

I hope this helps,

I am using chimera to make a movie a a protein complex interaction and I'm having trouble with the transparency command.  When I type in just the command into chimera it doesn't even recognize it as a command.  surftransp works but transp or transparency aren't recognized.  Is there a bug fix I can run for this?
