I googled and everything says there is a setting. I am using the Silhouette Designer Edition and there is no Transparency Film setting.

Does anyone know what my setting should be for the speed thickness and blade?

Perhaps you could try the setting for printer paper? I wouldn't use anything too very thick. Unless it is a super thick transparency.

This is the response I got from SSilhouette when I emailed support.
Thank you for your email.
We have tested transparencies and have been able to get successful cuts. The cut settings we used were as follows:

Speed: 3

Thickness: 28-33

Blade setting: 3

We do not sell any transparencies from our company. Unfortunately, we are unable to endorse or recommend any specific brand of transparency material. However, most transparency materials will be pretty similar, and you should be able to get clean results using settings similar to the ones above.
I have not tried it yet but good luck if you do.
