[Chimera-users] independent movement

I would like to use Chimera to make a movie in which multiple models
or chains move in different directions simultaneously.  The movie
illustrating myosin thick filament analysis
(http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/animations/movies/myomovie.mov) is a
good example.  I am not sure if this post
on interpolated model motion is relevant, or if the 'movemodel'
command imagined there actually exists in some patch that I do not

If that proves too difficult (I have little programming experience) I
would like to be able to hold one model or chain stationary while
moving another.  I can do this by using the model panel to make one
model inactive while entering a movement command to move the active
models, but I have not found a way to do this through the command
line.   Is there a command to activate/inactivate models, or another
way to move some models/chains and not others?

Thank you for your help.
