Hello N,

 

Thanks for the question.

 

There's a node named Alpha Merge for this exact workflow. With that being said, the Alpha Merge node expects to have a RGB map in addition to a Linear map plugged in. However, according to your screenshot, your Albedo map is also a Linear one.

 

Therefore, you should probably use the RGBA Merge, which has basically the same purpose as the Alpha Merge, but with the possibility to give specific inputs to RGB channels individually.

 

Best regards,
