Add Transparency to Captions

In Youtube and Wistia and most online video things I see and use, the captions are by default slightly transparent. So the video behind shows through the caption box "slightly" all the time.

Please add this capability to SL360. A tiny 15% transparency by default would be fine.

Even better would be an option to set the transparency in the PLAYER > COLORS AND EFFECT... right under the Captions Font... a setting for Captions Transparency ___%. Probably limit to 25% or so max.

But anything would be great here...

I've submitted a feature request as well.   

If anyone knows a workaround that doesn't include manually creating the caption boxes...
