In Chimera, by default only a single transparentl layer is shown. You can turn it off with command “~set singleLayer”
...or in the Effects tool (menu: Favorites… Side View, then click the Effects tab, then uncheck “single-layer” in the “transparency” section).
However, even with this option turned off, multiple transparent surfaces are still often rendered incorrectly in Chimera, a known problem. You can try it and see how it looks in your situation.
Unfortunately, this multiple-transparent-surfaces problem has not been solved in ChimeraX either, as detailed in this previous post:
