Problem with transparency

We just switched to Creo 2 from WF5, and I have recently installed the following video card with latest driver: PNY NVIDIA Quadro 5000 VCQ5000-PB, 2.50 GB GDDR5

I am now unable to make a part within an assembly transparent. As far as I can tell, the software thinks it has made the part transparent. There are no hiccups or errors. It just does not change the appearance of the part. I am able to switch to wireframe and other style states without a problem, but when transparent is selected, the part appears the same as shaded.

I've scoured theses forums and my config options to the best of my ability, and googled everything I can think of to work this out, but I am unable to even find any other example of someone having this problem.

Other workstations here have not had the same problem, although, the new video card I received is unique among our computers. Could it be the video card? Is there a config option I'm missing?

Thanks,

Luke

Re: Problem with transparency

There is a config.pro option...

transparency YES (yes is default)

You could completely disable your config (or multiple config files) and test to rule that out. or use a coworkers config that seems to be working.

Since it's specific to your machine, video card is a likely culprit. Might just be the particular driver you are using is causing the issue.

If you take an assy that won't show on your and someone else opens it, does it work? That will rule out a model specific problem.
