Custom Alpha Channel Tutorial for Gimp (advanced skinners)

Recommended Posts

Salute All,

I'm using Adobe CS3 and would very much like to edit my alpha to mate the painted areas and shine up the Alum. I have made some tries at this with the worst out come . I tried to copy my paint and marking to my alpha but im finding invisible holes in my AC in game, small but I see it. Not sure if im needing to convert to shadow before I paste to alpha. Any help would be great.


Salute Wolfe

I've tried this with Gimp 2.10...and it doesnt seem to work as the OP describes.


A work around I've found is to keep the Alpha channel I want to use as a layer in my template, then I finish my skin and use copy visible (shft+trl+C) and paste as new (shft+ctrl+V), then I copy the alpha layer into the new file as a layer mask. Save as .dds and presto!
