Default Paraview doesn't allow adjusting opacity

Hi all,

I came across a weird issue in paraview.

I was trying to achieve semi-transparent effect by adjusting opacity level (Properties panel -> Styling -> Opacity), however the entire visual would disappear as long as opacity is not 1.

For example, the whole layer would disappear if I set Opacity to to 0.5 or even 0.99, and the layer would reappear as 100% opaque if I change Opacity level back to 1.

Apart from this, everything else works perfectly. I assume it's a problem with my environment / graphic or a paraview setting I overlooked?

Has anyone experienced this problem before. I appreciate your help very much!

Sounds like a graphics driver issue.
After trying out the latest version of PV, make sure you have the correct and most recent driver installed for your particular GPU.
