I am using Lightwave 7.5b and am having a problem with vertex colours.

A vertex colour map is assigned to a surface.

You can have multiple vertex colour maps for a object, one for each surface on a single object.

The problem I am having is that I cant select any other Colour map other than the first one I create.

Each map shows up in the surface properties advanced tab.

I am using the Airbrush tool is there a different way to select the colour map that I want to paint onto?

In the airbrush tool, open the numeric panel (n) and select the colour map you want to paint to in there.

Thanks yes I understood that the problem I was having was what the new map wasnt appearing there to select.

I have found out that if I create a map do what I want on that map then create another map the second one doesnt appear in the list.

I actually have to save the object, close Lightwave, open it again, load the model, create the second map as it isnt saved then it appears on the list !

Is it me or do other people have this problem ?
