Tex Component

The Tex Component plug-in selects which component of a texture is used for the texture mapping process.

Note: This plug-in is a legacy plug-in and the functionality is now incorporated into the Texture Editor.

    • Alpha+Color: Uses both the alpha and the RGB color of the texture (default setting).
