Viewing Alpha images within C4D viewport

Probably a simple solution but how do i see my Cutout Opacity image within the C4D viewport. At the moment i can only see the alpha image in the IPR Window. This isn't ideal when i need to see several objects with alpha channels to camera animations through them.

Unfortunately the shaders in the viewport are very limited and transparency is not supported currently. I'll try to improve it in the future, yet there are some technical limitations, so I'm not sure how much I can achieve.

No progress on this, sorry. Maybe switching to the new Node Editor will solve it, but I haven't tested yet. It's on my todo list, just need to get there.
