Author Topic: SD 4.6.2- Export to PSD creates transparency in normals map.  (Read 1245 times)

I've never really dove into SD until now, but I followed along with this dirty tiles tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mcQmYQOqbk

Everything went smoothly and it works as expected in SD, but I'm having problems when it comes to exporting.

Left is exporting as a normal bitmap, right is if exporting layers to a PSD.

I know I can toggle the transparency in the 2D preview, but that doesn't help with the PSD exporting. Is there anything I need to do so PSD will export proper normals?

You need to remove the alpha channel from the normal map.  Get this node created by Froyok, it's just using a levels node and making the Alpha black.

I went ahead and created one myself, but that did the trick. Thanks!
