Thank you for writing.
You can control the item's transparency by its Opacity
property together with the CarouselContentItem.reflectionPrimitive.Visibility
item.Opacity = 1;
item.reflectionPrimitive.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
