1) Are you trying to show only your region of interest?
2) Or are you trying to update the frames for only your region of interest
and freeze the others??
3) Or maybe you're trying to make the molecules whole so that they don't
split across the box?
Go to the graphics representation menu and make a selection for your region
of interest. (graphics > representations)
In the trajectory tab, tick update each frame.
For the second one I have an idea, but am not so sure if it's feasible.
Maybe you could make a representation for your selection, one for each
frame. And then loop through a script to show and hide the representations.
For instance: (atomselect top "within 5 of resname LYR" frame 23)
With: (atomselect top "not within 5 of resname LYR" frame 1)
Example of rep looping:

I think it has something to do with pbc wrap or whole options. If I recall
correctly, one of these options are irreversible once they have been made
For example: http://lammps.sandia.gov/threads/msg42801.html
I hope this helps!
