Author Topic: Reducing height map opacity  (Read 2961 times)

I've painted a height map in SP and I would like to reduce its overall intensity. The numbered opacity does absolutely nothing. What should I do? There are a lot of details so staring over with a lower value on my brush is not a good option as it will waste a lot of time. I figured I'd be able to reduce the intensity after painting but nothing is working for me to accomplish this.

I want to double-check something, since I'm not sure which "numbered" thing you're talking about.

Take a look at this post in User Voice, and look at the picture there:

You'll sort of have to follow the arrows backwards, but in the top-left corner you would change the channel to "Height" and then adjust the opacity of the Height channel where the red arrow is pointing to the default value of "100."

That drop down menu was rather invisible to me, thanks for showing me. Gonna try it today and see if it works to do what I want.

Yeah, pretty invisible to me too.
And a few other people as well.

a) Let us know if that does the job.
b) If you agree with the UI suggestion, give it a vote on User Voice (or at least add a comment).

Good luck.
