Hi Mike,

  The Chimera animation dialog that works with scenes is only useful for making the simplest of movies because scenes don’t save complete state and few transitions are available.  For movies that run into those limitations you should use Chimera command scripts to create movies.  For hiding or showing a rectangle the “modeldisp” command would be used in such a script.  Here is a Chimera movie making tutorial based on command scripts

and here are examples of commands useful for animations
