I wonder if anyone knows a plugin or something that allows you to simply and quickly view your different maps on the object? For example, it would be nice to quickly view your specular map you're just painting to see that the bright parts fall in the right areas. Without relying on having to render to view it. Or you want to view your skin diffuse on your model, but the Fast skin shader is making your model that solid black or red.
Ideally, I'd love to see Autodesk impliment it. Other modelling packages have the option, so why not maya. For example a little tick box next to each that allows you to tick them to preview each map on the model. Like this :
I know you can plug your textures into the diffuse through Hypershade. But it's just annoying.
So any plugins anyone knows of that will do it quickly? :D
