Thanks for the report! This have been an issue on our list that reparenting folders could fail to trigger a render update, for short term fix of your case specifically, you could try either of those methods:

  1. putting those objects under the folder into a transparent frame instead, which theoretically would correctly trigger the visibility update when reparented.
  2. move folders into / outside ScreenGuis whenever need it / no longer need it to display.

The latter would also benefit with input processing.
