The following Steps are important:

1: Tell the Software the correct parameters of the point cloud. This can be done by the Button Set PC parameters in the Import Menu on the left side of the ribbon.
2: Define the correct parameters for the orthoimage. Cou can set up the density and pixel size manually or click onto the button for automatic detection from the point cloud parameters.
3: Use the x-Ray slider to adjust the transparrency. If you won't use x-ray, then you can also add more contrast by changing the background color in the ortho image dialogue settings.

Hope this helps :)
