Thanks stucki. Sounds about just right.
As the models are Lumion Library Objects
, there is no ability to adjust any of the parts for color or alternative textures (as you can with cars for color). They are for use as is, which of course does not suit specific case needs such as for johnnyboy.
So its necessary to do a work-around and use some extra meshes to 'cover' or add to the existing textures or colors. So long as the camera does not get too close and the 'covers' are just far enough apart from the base model that they don't intersect, then it's a suitable solution.
And seeing how it's starting to rain we need to put the covers on.
... yikes, inane attempt to crack a joke
for the alpha mapping to work you have to push one slider in the material menu to one side
The slider is the Reflection/Clip/Bright
slider. Any value >0.5 and <1.0 uses the alpha mask to clip the pixels. (see attached pic)
