Using PSD layers in texture layersets

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've been importing a single PSD into a material colour then selecting and switching the layers over the timeline effectively animating the material.

I've tried ticking the 'generate alpha' box but this doesn't seem to have any effect? DO I need to tick the alpha box in the material editor menu and animate

the corresponding alpha channel as well when animating the layers? Thanks Adrian

Yes I think you do. There is some lack of documentation as to what the 'generate alpha' check box is meant to address, but I don't think it's this...

Thanks Cerbera, yes the 'generate alpha' doesn't seem to do what it suggests. Seem a pain to have to animate the alphas along with the layers, there must be a way around this?

I suspect not. Cinema only works with alphas in materials via that channel.
