    I try to present a serie of objects with a manifold.
    All are in PLY format.
    The objects are points clouds while the manifold is mesh of vertex and faces (triangles)

    When I open all of files in single meshlab projects, The manifold hides the objects inside it.
    Is there a way to make the manifold look semi transperent?

    I try to add alpha parameter to vertex with differnt value but nothing changed.
    Does meshlab support alpha property in PLY files?

    ply
    format ascii 1.0
    element vertex 1954
    property float x
    property float y
    property float z
    property float nx
    property float ny
    property float nz
    property uchar red
    property uchar green
    property uchar blue
    property uchar alpha
    element face 3908
    property list uchar int vertex_index
