Opacity: Opacity refers to the amount of transparency a layer has. For instance, if a layer's opacity is set to 100%, then that layer is completely opaque (in other words, you can't see through it). If a layer's opacity is set to 50%, then it is see-through, or moderately transparent, and layers behind it can show through. On the other end of the scale, if a layer’s opacity is set to 0%, then that layer is completely transparent (that is, invisible).

Source: To show the type of the content, including None/Scene/Map/Movie/Component Hint.
