Hi Hernando,

   There are two ways to go about this.  One is to use the color command


say 20 times in a script to gradually increase the transparency to 1. 
You can specify the color as 4 values r,g,b,a in Chimera 1.4 daily 
builds (but not in 1.3).  A second approach is to download a plugin 
called "Animation Commands" from the Chimera Experimental Features web 
page (near the bottom):


Installing this gives you the "transition" command which can fade
