[Chimera-users] layering problem

Yes, there is a “single-layer” transparency setting (on by default) to show only the topmost of multiple transparent layers. You can control it in the Effects tool or with a command, e.g.
… to turn it off. Note multiple transparent layers can add visual complexity and make a structure harder to understand, and sometimes Chimera has problems in rendering them correctly. That’s not to say you might not want them sometimes, just be aware of the potential issues!
I hope this helps,

This occurs when I set transparency also in the model, even at low transparency (e.g command #19:transparency 5,a,r #0:259-271). See the example attached- the left hand most part of the model, and the ADP is hidden when their transparency is non-zero. Can I prevent this?
