If it's clear, it shouldn't have any effect.

If you've got a digital camera with an LCD screen that can be used for
framing a shot, then you can test it. Turn on the camera and point the
remote at the lens. Look at the screen and press one of the buttons and
you should see the LED on the end of the remote twinkling. Now try with
your prospective custom front in front of the remote. If you can still
see it lighting up, it should work.
