PMDG Paint Kit Windows Blank

Recommended Posts

Hello Again and happy 2015 in advance.

 

I am now 99% done at happy with the new paint job. I have 1 nagging issue remaining, which ones again I can't find anything for on

the web.

 

Using the PMDG base model for the .DDS template, I am sitting with several windows on either side of the plane at the front and back

that are either greyed out, or has reflective glass but you still can't see into the cabin.

 

I tried using a mask layer for the respective windows, R2, R44, R45, L42 and L43, and even tried deleting the window blanks themselves.

 

No change.

 

Does anybody know how to fix this?

 

Please.

 

Kind Regards

The paint kit comes with a PDF that explains how to use it. Have you read this?

The alpha channel controls where 'holes' will appear in the fuselage. You need to make the alpha channel 'black' in the places where you have windows. Then you can see through the window.

 

You also need to make the alpha channel white where there are window blanks or you will have extra holes in the side of the plane.
