Hi list,
I'm working with GM since yesterday. This software is really great.
This morning i'm exploring shading options and i have 3 questions :

- Is there a way to save shading and vertical parameters in a file. I'm doing a lot of test and I'd like to save these parameters to be able to reproduce all the the relief shadings i'm trying. Right now i'm doing print screen but it is a bit heavy.

-Is there a depot or a place where i can find/exchange custom shaders? I found a lot a web site over relief shading but no one with custom shaders files.

-Is there a way to merge multiple shaders (with opacity option) ?

Thanks for your help

    When you save a workspace file your vertical and shader options should be saved in that workspace so that you can just reload that workspace later to update the display options.

    There isn't really any repository that I know of for custom shaders.

    To merge multiple shaders you would need to load the same terrain layer multiple times, then on the Options dialog for each elevation layer set it up to use a specific shader rather than the shared one, then setup the translucency (opacity) as desired to blend them.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
