Adding Alpha Channel to VTF

I’ve posted this in the modelling section but I’ve had little luck there, so I’m posting here to try and get more of a response. :slight_smile: I’m trying to make a playermodel colourable but I’m not too sure about how to do it. I’ve seen people suggesting that I add an alpha channel but I don’t know how to do that. I’m using paint.net. What I want to do is change part of the vtf to be colourable and other parts to remain uncoloured. I can sort out the VMT stuff fine just not the VTF stuff. Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

i think this might http://gamebanana.com/tuts/7660 should work with paint.net too

Paint.NET will not suffice, it cannot work with alpha channels.

Gimp does though

Yeah, I eventually changed to GIMP and used trial and error. I have finally got it working.
