How to set only value when editing?

choarrim posted this 28 October 2017


I used qubicle to make my model, and then import it using pica. When I want to edit the voxels value, I click on the drop down and choose "value". I set my value and then try to "paint" the voxel with their new value. The problem here is that while it do set the value, it also paint the voxel with whatever colour is selected? How can I ONLY paint value and not value AND colour?

I just double-checked this in case there was a bug in value painting (I haven't used it in quite some time), but no; it's working fine.

When you switch to value mode the voxels change to a greyscale colour mode. The brightness of the greyscale indicates the value of the voxel from 0 (black) to 255 (white). So when you paint with the selected value, it looks like you're changing the colour, but you're actually only changing the value.

When you're finished painting values, simply change the dropdown from Value back to Color and the colours will return to normal.

There is one slight bug that I did notice: if you click Stop Editing while still in Value mode, the colours will not change back as they should, and will remain greyscale. If that happens, click Start Editing, then change the dropdown from Color to Value and then back to Color again, then Stop Editing.
