Merging, Swaping Planes

Recommended Posts

OK, since version 6 I think, Halo has this feature where you can't have an image without an alpha channel. So what I want to know is what is the proper method for combining seperate images. Here's what I'm trying to do.

I have two images A and B. I want to take the color plane from image B and stick it into image A's Alpha channel. What I'm doing right now is:

Merge COP: A and B which results in 4 planes C and A (from image A) C1 and A1 (from image B)

Rename COP: rename A ->junk1 C1->A A1->junk2

Delete COP: delete planes junk1 and junk2

This works, however, I get warnings on the Rename COP. "Cannot completely rename planes C and A. Default planes added."

So despite this working, I'm not sure if it's the right way to do it. Anyone know of a better way?
