Excusez moi four ecrice en anglais.
I wrote this guideline for my friend Gunnar van der Meeren.
Maybe one of you can translate this in French. ( If you are intersted)
How to repaint a aileron.
This is the way it goes:
Start Fly and make a screenshot looking ( from the cockpit)over the west (or east) wing.
Use this screenshot BMPand make a sketch of how you want the wing to look with striping on it.
In other words make this screenshot look as the repaint was already done.
Later we use this BMP when we are painting the wing views ( alileron,flap and wing must match!!!!!)
Start Flygraphics and convert the flapanimation(west) . PBG to a BMP.
Flygraphics will make a BMP and a TXT file.
During the whole process thes files should stay together.
The txt file is needed by the re-conversion to PBG.
Open this BMP in your paint-program.
Edit the colorpallette and make the color in field 0 BLACK(0,0,0)
The blue tuns black now.
Then increase to 16 milj colors.
Now use the colorswapper and replace the BLACK(0,0,0) by light blue again.
Select the middlelest flap including the non-moving part of the wing and
place this on the screenshot.( use layer)
Now restore the painting on the wing and aileron again.
Bring the flap(painted now) back to the aileron animation BMP..
Select the non-moving part of the animation and copy it over all
It is the non-moving part so they are all the same.
Now paint all the stripes on all positions ,working from the neutral
position towards the max-up and max-down positions.
IT IS VITAL TO WORK FROM THE MIDDLE-POSITION!
When this all has been done use colorswapper and make blue go Black(0,0,0)
Go to 256 clrs again.
You think I am ready now and can convert to PBG again.
YOU ARE NOT
Use the colorswapper again and go to blue instead of Black (0,0,0)
again BUT DO NOT GO TO 16 milj colors.
Because you used aliaising there is a part of the striping at the rear-edge
of the aileron wich is not the right color.
You`ll have to correct those spots pixel by pixel , to avoid bad black spots
at the rear-edge of the repainted parts.
After retouching all those spots, use the colorswapper and go back to
Use Flygraphics to convert to a PBG and ACT.
Put these PBG and ACT files in the ART folder and look at the result.
Probably you`ll see still some bad spots occur when moving the ailerons.
Go back to the BMP restore the bad spots and try again.( swapping coloragain,otherwise you cannot find the dark spots)
At last the job is FINISHED and YOU ARE FINISHED TOO.
Now lean back, and have a drink and play a CD
You deserve it now.
I wish you lots of succes,
