Unexplained Transparency in Particular Project

I am working with Particular and some of my particles are showing up semi-transparent. However I have the Opacity set to 100% with 0% Randomness and with the Opacity staying constant over life. I also changed the visibility settings so that the Far/Near Vanish points and start fade points are the same. So why are some of my particles semi-transparent? Is there a setting I'm missing? Thanks!

Maybe you have Motion Blur on?

Nope. Is there a way I can attach a screengrab of my settings?
I am using the layer emitter. Does it steal Transparency from the layer? I told it not to take any settings from the layer....

Yes, it always uses the alpha channel.

I have the exact problem and you seem to find the solution but I don't get it.
Could you kindly tell me how you fixed the problem?
thanks

It was a loooong time ago. But I think what happened was I had a layer emitter that had a feathered edge and so all the particles being emitted from the feathered edge were semi transparent.

I can't remember for sure though. But check that.
