But when doing a blendmask, everything that is painted in black won’t show up at all in FSX. The good thing about that blendmask thingy is that it does not have to be in either black or white, it can have grey scales which means you can soften the edges of your image and let it blend in with the default FSX scenery or ocean water background.

How long does it take to do a watermask on FSX?

Doing a watermask is usually the most time consuming part. For Nauru it might take only 30 minutes but for larger islands or atolls it can take hours or even weeks until the job is done.
