32bit EXR Alpha channel

Recommended Posts

Is thre a way to open a 32-bit exr file, withou applying the alpha channel to all the layers in the file? When opening a rendered file from 3ds max everything in the windows is just transparent pixels.

What do you mean?

 

We group channels into respective layers, and we only apply the alpha channel to the associated layer - so, that would be and RGBA, YA, or YRYBYA layer.  The alpha doesn't get propagated to every layer.  We don't combine alpha with any other layer type, such as XYZ, Z or ZBack layers - in these cases the Alpha is loaded as a separate grayscale layer.

Ah, I see, my bad. I usually save a file as RGBA, and the Photoshop plugin asks me if it should apply Alpha on opening the file. So i have an additional Alpha Channel, next to Red Green and Blue. I had expected such an option when opening a file in Affinity but it just respected the RGBA file type, as it should.

 

Thanks for the quick answer. Just started with the Windows Beta, great software so far.
