Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

sculpting alpha brush does not work

Hello, I am currently working on a landscape, and I want to use the sculpting alpha brush tool to make some mountains and hills, but when I tried dragging the image onto the little pannel where you drag & drop your images it shows up green BUT when I release the LMB it is just the DefaultAlphaTexture and not my image.

So I tried another image, wich is also b/w and this works. alt text

I checked the "description/details" of both images and they're identical. alt text

So I don't know what is wrong... Could anyone help me? (I apologize for my bad english) thanks :)
