I've created several alpha channels for fencing, low res/high res trees, gates, rail fences, ornate benches, various conduits/lattice structures, and pylons; basically, anything that can be viewed as a planimetric 3D model that is extruded and textured with a jpg and a mask created in Photoshop, then exported as a tga file.

The textures and masks work in 3D Studio Max 2018, but I run into problems when I generate files and view them in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.

I have a chain link fence with a concertina wire coil on top that is visually displayed properly with a functional mask in Adobe Acrobat DC, but the mask turns opaque in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.

Are there any settings that may correct the opacity of the mask in Reader DC? 

I've already played with the transparency, but it just manipulates the mask and texture of the chain link.  I want the chain link to view with 100% opacity, while the tga file (mask) masks the background 100% like it does in 3D Studio Max 2018.

 This is an example of chain link fence in 3dS Max 2018, and it looks like this in Adobe Acrobat DC.  The mask within the chain link comes up opaque in Reader DC when it should be transparent.  In other words, the viewer should see right thru the fence.

One other piece of information that may spur a solution or at least an explanation of the results I'm getting in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.  The pdfs are viewed in Acrobat Reader DC on a Windows 10 OS.  If anyone has insight into issues

on Win10 OS while using Acrobate Reader DC, please enlighten me.  Thanks.

Is the page display preference to use Overprint Preview set to "Always"?
