Hey guys this is my problem, i draw on my mesh some height information within a paint layer. Now afterwards i tried to add color but it isnt possible anymore. Is there a way to add color to the already existing height information. If not whats the usecase of a paint layer, a fill layer with a mask can do the same and is editable afterwards.

 

Hopefully you can help me.

 

Peace

One more thing though, if you realise later that you want to add colour over a specific heght level on the mesh then you could add a fill layer with colour and a compare mask set to compare height (example below)
