I have recently enabled compositing in Metacity, and am pleased with the results however cannot seem to obtain any transparency in windows.
I have Ubuntu Tweek installed and have played around with the options they offer regarding transparency, but it seems to have no impact.
I cannot help feel I am missing something real straightforward and any guidance would be appreciated.

You probably need to install transset and use it to set the transparency properties for the windows.
