Show Alpha Always Mode?

Post by Mike Truly »

I frequently have a need to inspect many animation frames and many times, viewing the alpha channel is the easiest way to see discrepancies between frames.

In XnView, I know I can use the 'M' key to see the alpha channel (this is great... thanks) but is there any way to turn on 'Alpha Viewing Mode' and automatically only see alpha when using the Spacebar or Backspace to step through images? Would be very hand to just hit Space or Backspace to look at the alpha channels only.

Thanks!
Sincerely,

Mike Truly

Perhaps when you use 'show alpha', this mode must be kept when you use Prev/Next Page??

Pierre,

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to this.

Yes, I think an option to keep the 'show alpha' active when using Prev/Next Page would do what I want. (this option does not already exist, does it?).

Thanks!
Sincerely,

Mike Truly
