    So is there a setting in the PBR Materials section that will use the alpha Channel?

    Prepar3D v4.4 PBR materials

    Thanks for the reply! The alpha channel is still there.... The exported textures are all fine, but in MCX as well as in P3D the alpha channel is not visible. Norvin.

    Prepar3D v4.4 PBR materials

    Hello! I'm trying to use PBR Rendering with MCX since it came out. I got it working so far with all the bump ( normal map ), metalic and smoothness map.... I noticed one problem though. When I have a diffuse texture with an alpha channel MCX uses it fine until I convert the model into a P3D...

    Project 2019: Port of Hamburg

    Hello! I think this will be a very good project as I'm also flying regularly to/from Hamburg in P3D V4 with ORBX. The performance there is quiet bad and the autogen around the harbor looks very unrealistic... I'm excited and keep the work up! Grüße aus Hamburg, Norvin

    P3Dv4 Dynamic Lighting

    Hi! The effect file from Visual FX alone won't work ( and same for the inverted way, so MCX spotlight only won't work either ). Hope that will help you, Norvin.

    How long did you wait after this freeze? On my old laptop ADE was freezing for about 30 seconds after a while.

    When I start ADE, I can select if want to open the fsx or p3d (v4). IDK if you have the simconnect.msi for p3d?? Norvin.

    P3Dv4 Dynamic Lighting

    As Arno said in the post below yours, you may have a bgl library - that means every object/model in this library is separate. You can only apply effects on a model separate, not on libraries. So a solution for your problem would be to place all the objects in one mdl file. Then you apply your...

    Invalid File Type in ADE

    Hello, I fixed the problem! I tried to scale the original bmp in gimp from 12.000 pixels to 4000 pixels. In my case the image doesn't need to be sharp, because I only need it to align my GP.
