CG Wishlist

3D View needs R, G, B and A viewer mode:

It would be nice if you could add a way to view only the Red, Blue, Green or Alpha channel in the 3D View.

Sometimes we make false color images, which are RGB images where the R, G, and B represent 3 different values, instead of meant to be viewed as a single color.

Like say you have a texture that will be used to produce rocks on a surface, and the red channel represents the displacement value, blue represents a random brightness variance per rock, blue represents an occlusion channel, etc. And you want to load the map into mudbox on a mesh and then edit each channel separately. Currently there's no simple way to view only a single channel, and so you have to split up these into separate layers, which can be a time comsuning manual task. If we could view these channels in the 3d view, then they could be viewed separately which would help make the touch ups.

If you agree with this wish, please go and VOTE for it on the official Autodesk Wishlist. The top voted wishes will be considered for future versions of max.
