Alpha not working right for render or assembly room

I am using C8.5 beta, and I made an alpha map for a characters jeans to be shorts. Works great. Saved the whole character so I could try her in other scenes.

Dropped her in Howie's Maple Meadows to see how she worked….and the alpha map does not work in Assembly room or render? If I go to the materials, it shows, renders and works in the preview?

What would be causing it to work fine in the materials but not in render or assembly room? Any thoughts?

    check BOTH locations for transparency in the render room settings... If you have global illumination turned on, there are seperate controls for the transparency (and light through transparency) under the GI tab.
