The color.tint.mask texture property is linked to the color, color.alpha and color.tint texture properties. It defines the amount of tint applied to the image from the color and color_alpha texture properties. This allows to alter the color of textures without requiring new image files for each color variation. Furthermore this allows for dynamic color changes using a renderable for this texture property.
The value is typically a 1 color component image with values located inside the range from 0 to 1.
The default value for this texture property is 1.
4 crates with the same skin assigned. Each one has a different tint color using a dynamic skin. The skin uses a renderable named “tint” for the color.tint texture property. This way the material can be reused in various places just with a different color each time.
