I have noticed that transparaître and derivatives are seen with both être and avoir as auxiliaries. I assume it's because of transitive and intransitive verb usage. Is this the reason ? Can you please give me some examples.
Transparaître ( to show through/to be reflected in ) et comparaître (to appear) are derivatives of paraître
Apparaître uses mainly 'être ', see my answer to Maarten -
Transparaître uses mainly 'avoir' -
Hope this helps!
