I do a lot of architectural renderings and have to lots of parking lots and roadways... I use Lightwave 7 and have been building my model of the site roadways then UV Mapping them... I need a way to paint lines and dirt on the roadways.. I use surface baker to get a image map.. I use Paint Shop Pro to paint dirt and lines on a new layer... I want to be able to add this to the model but have trouble making an Alpha image so that the whole image isn't applied.... HOW DO I MAKE A GOOD ALPHA IMAGE IN PAINTSHOP PRO... I 've tried reducing the image to 2 colors but that gives terrible results... ANYway what can I do to make this proccess easier?!?
