Broken opacity in Animations

Is anyone else encountering the issue in Visualize where parts are not obeying their opacity keys? I've got several parts that appear later in my animation that now are visible from the start and only parts are visible and they seem to have all appearances removed. I also can't select them from the view port but I can hide them by finding the sub-group in the model tree and changing the opacity.


The strange part is that when the components fade-in later in the animation, they appear correctly with all appearances applied. 



I called our solidworks rep. and they said this is a known issue, but I haven't seen it in accurate rendering mode before so I was able to deal with the problem. But now its keeping me from doing a final render because these ghost parts are now visible in the final rendering. 



Has anybody found a work-around for this? 


red circled parts shouldn't be visible yet. Notice they have no appearances. 



The final result will be similar to the animation here:
