Hi,
I'm working on a rigging tutorial, and my null objects are solid red blocks instead of wireframe. This is obscuring the rig and making it very difficult to see what I'm up to. No doubt I'm missing the obvious, but I'd be grateful to be pointed in the rtight direction.

That's probably because you dragged nulls into the comp from the Solids folder. Just make a null by going Layer>Null, and then duplicate it to make as many as you need. They'll remain transparent as you expect.

Thank's Dave. The Nulls are being created by Duik. Basically, you select your pins within Mesh > Deform and then click the Bones button in the Duik panel and it creates an IK rig.



I'm following the above tutorial click for click, and all is as should be apart from this issue. I thought it might be a setting in the panel view options, but no...

If they're nulls, twirl down the properties and set opacity to zero. The red goes away.
