# Beamer nested Itemize

currently I'm doing my first lecture with latex and beamer.

I have problems with using a nested itemize. On the first slide, everything should be visible respectively transparent. BUT: The nested itemize is fully invisible. If the slide with the upper point gets full visible, the nested itemize items get transparent. But I want to have them invisible the whole frame.

A example:

\begin{itemize}
\item<1-> First
\begin{itemize}
\item<2-> Sub-Itemize
\item<3-> Sub-Itemize
\end{itemize}
\item<4-> Second
\begin{itemize}
\item<5-> Again Sub-Itemize
\item<6-> Again Sub-Itemize
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}


This is what I have:

This is what I want:

• Can you make a compilable MWE? And please make clear which elements you want to display on which slides. On the first slide should the things be visible or transparent (this is confusing). Feb 14, 2017 at 16:32

• Sorry, how can i post longer comments with code? It isn't possible to answer with a lot of characters. :-( Feb 14, 2017 at 17:40
• I edited with prepared Screenshots. See my pics Feb 14, 2017 at 17:50

The second itemization is visible, just fainter then the first. You can adjust the opaqueness or use another transparency effect, see 17.6 Transparency Effects in the beamer user guide.
