Hi Jean-Francois,
If "A" and "B" are molecule models and/or molecular surfaces, yes.   
However, there is currently a bug that VRML models (such as generated  
by Nucleotides, PipesAndPlanks) are included in the pov file and  
resulting POV-Ray image even when they are not shown in Chimera.

To work around this problem, I recommend first saving a session with  
all your models, then closing the models you don't want in your pov  
file and image, then saving the pov file.

I'll submit a bug report.  Thanks for pointing out this problem,
