I'm not sure if it's related to your case, but when I was setting the color attribute of a geometry using RGBA values, it seems there was some Z-fighting issues in the viewport. It looks like it's resolved in recent Bifrost updates, but just in case, here's a workaround: 


- Select an alternative Transparency Algorithm on the Viewport 2.0 properties (Depth Peeling or Alpha Cut).

Thanks for reply.

I am using a point shape and the problem is to update the transparency.
I don't know why that happens.

I think I'll fall back to use the circle shape without transparency to convenience.
