Rendering clear plastics in Solidworks Visualize

I have a clear plastic cup that I created in SW. In SW I applied a transparent plastic

that appears clear SW but when opening the part in Visualize the clear plastic appears solid. Even when I apply a clear plastic appearance that is found in Visualize library it is not entirely clear (maybe 10%). This is for all plastics.

I have tried glass appearance but this is not realistic to a polyprop or polycarb plastic.

does anyone have solution for this or even a custom material with its setting that I can use in Visualize please.
