Re: Question about saving image

In a way, yes, but don't think of it like a photoshop layer! The borders to the alpha may not behave the way you like with the [ctrl]+[s] option. However, you can save components, which will split the image into two files: one of pure colors and one with the material only, like a height map.
Check the INFO thread!

especially this section:
[Shift]+[s] to save as...
[Ctrl]+[s] to save active layer only as 16 bit PNG with alpha
[Ctrl]+[Shift]+[s] to save image as two 16 bit PNG images of components: Color only and Material only (height image). Filename gets suffix "_col" and "_mat".
Here to help! :D

Hello! I tried Crtl+Shift_S with Unreal engine 4. Converted HighMap to normal map with lighting properties and thats what i get:

Re: Question about saving image

Yeah, hey, that's great! :hyper: ...nice to see it used in the Unreal Engine! :)
I will do some more export options eventually, including normal map and modes for them, too.
