Leen,the original TIF has an alpha channel to cut the windows, and you must delete it with your paint tool,(or make your repaint around it ...but I suggest you to delete it, because it's not beautiful to see an empty plane) ok! Also uncheck trasparency option for the GLASSE part in the FlyII editor [ after loading the model (option 1), choice properties (option 5)] OK :-)CiaoGiorgio GnesdaPS: When I'll find the time, I'll make the pod and then I'll upload it, so you will have everything to see from yourself

I just explain the original tiff has an alpha channel! If you don't want to see the cutted windows you must remove it from the original tiff.It's not important the color you are using.RegardsGiorgio

Mmm... I guess I used a different method then. I am sorry, I thought the ACM file was making all the black pieces to transparent. But if you are as sure as you wrote....I didn't mess with any Alpha channels, I didn't have to delete any windows, all I did was put a WHITE strip in front of the Black windows and painted the "blueish" windows.I am uploading the repaint right now.

in ACM there is an option to get trasparency from a part, but it creates a own alpha. If you get the original TIF and in Paint shop pro or Photoshop try to extract the channels, here you can see four colour channel and the alpha channel. Now you can see all trasparent windows you see in the sim. I know it because in my "Cross Air" repaint I did so, but it's the way to create trasparency in every game too.If you get opacity in other way... anyway you deleted the alpha channel maybe flatten the image or unchecking the option "export alpha"All the bestGiorgio Gnesda

PhotoShop? he he... you will not believe what I used for my repaint. Anyways.. you are the Pro here, I just have fun painting and by all means I do not consider my self expert in this matter. By reading your explanation I think what I ended doing on my repaint was to put an opacy mask on top of the Alpha layer you are talking about, therefore FLY cannot do the transparency trick anymore.... right? more or less ?Regards, Javier.

Hallo guys,Thank you for your excellent explanation Giorgio.last night I did my homework on channels and layers.NOW I understand channels and layers are NOT the same.Thank you Javier for your explanation but I think your method only give the windows another appearance blueish, greenish whatever,but they still are cut-out and transparent.The best way to prove this is to make the tif totally green.Now we have a compleet green plane with green-transparent windows.Following Giorgio`s advise gives a plane without transparent windows.The color of the cockpit windows is defined by the rectangled field on the tif.The cabin-windows on the other hand can be painted like the rest of the textures on the tif , one window closed with a sun screen another window with a waving passenger and so on.It`s great having you guys on this forum.Jean Sabatier also advised me on this matter in a great way.Thanks once again to all of you.(Giorgio,Jean,Javier and Cord)your FLY-friend / votre ami en FLYLeen
