rFactor templates


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to paint my cars for rFactor. But I cant figure out how to do this. I can paint them, no problem, but how do I save them to install into the skins folder. When I do, it comes out like the images below. What am I doing wrong? When I do save them as a .dds file, the program requires it saved as 'flattened'. Is this the problem? Also, does paint.net have a feature which will give my images a 'shine'? I've seen other programs like paint pro that has that feature. Any suggestions or help will be GREATLY appreciated.

Flattening means that everything is combined into one layer. You'll want to undo that after saving and save it as a .PDN file to preserve the layers.

Try the glow function for shine.

Thanks for the advice. I tried saving as a pdn file, but it would not load into the skins file. all other skins are dds files. how do i 'undo' the flattening? after I save it, then 'flatten' it, I go back to the edit and the 'undo' is not highlighted.

Again, thank you very much for the help.

If you mean make it look like metal, use Effects --> Photo --> Metalize.

I dont have a 'metalize' function under the Photo. (shrug).

When a file is closed, History is lost.

If the file is saved and closed while flattened,

layers cannot be recovered.

Best to save first as a .pdn file, then save again as .dds with a different filename.

(This way you'll have two files, a .pdn with layers, and a .dds for rFactor.)

===============================

Metallize is part of dpy's plugin pack.
