Yeah totally - Material editing is quite a subject in itself ! I really like the original features you have in the current panel - like,how holding down left click opens the recently used mat spheres for quick access, for instance. Very elegant ! But yeah it's true that some other aspects could bene...

Oh haha you're pushing it even further then hehe :D

Alpha could aslo be another slot altogether btw (alongside bumb, base color, curvymaps) - doesn't necessarily have to be embedded in the TGA. Might make it easier !

Regarding texture maps with alpha channel for transparency : Is it possible to paint on the alpha of such TGA maps straight within Curvy using the existing painting toolset ?

Hi - I was about to try out this joining method but I seem unable to find the tools you are describing in your first post. Are these still available in the current 3.1.1 ?

Thanks !

Very cool - can't wait to play with that. I am a little bit behind when it comes to color and texture painting in Curvy. Is it possible to actually edit/paint on such a texture channel straight within the Curvy environment, in order to "paint in" small extruded 3D details on the surface of a model ?...

Thanks :)

That sounds really promising !! Cannot wait to see it in action. Again this feels like another area where Curvy can break the mold and do things better than any other 3d app out there. Awesome.
