I'm running R17 Studio. I've implemented and tested all of the suggestions above and am still running into the same result - 100% opacity of the animated figure. As is suggested above, perhaps the Visibility setting isn't really the best approach to achieve semi-transparency.

It was suggested that transparency in the materials might be a better approach. As I mentioned earlier, I'm importing figures from Adobe Fuse/Mixamo where you can easily select varied figures with a variety of looks and clothing options. The animated figure arrives in C4D all created and rigged with the materials. The materials arrive with full transparency enabled. One needs to uncheck them to enable opacity. Unfortunately, there is no transparency adjustment available that I can locate. The two extremes are either 100% transparency or 100% opacity.

So, unless there is some way to adjust the transparency of the materials that I am not aware of, it appears that there is no way to achieve the semi-transparency effect with an animated figure. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions. Thanks.
