View Full Version : AE-style transparency indicator in VPR, or "checkerboard" effect, +VPR enhancements

You know how in AE or PShop you often have the opportunity to see the transparency of a layer or comp as a checkerboard-like layer?

That'd be REAL nice to have in VPR. :hey:

But we can do better: sometimes the monochrome checkerboard doesn't work with, say, monochrome objects, so I suggest a tint be able to be applied, decided by the user. This could either specify both the "white and black" checkerboard colors, or for simplicity's sake just be one tint that is applied to both the light and the dark squares.

Additionally, seeing the ALPHA channel in VPR would be convenient too. Either/both a "on only while you hold this button down" mode, or a switch for when you want to see it for longer periods.

While we're at it, how about switches for each color channel too?
