what is the best way to make mask in my textures

Hello Modo/Octane users

I just acquired Octane for Modo.

I spent a lot of time understanding how to texture with the nodes in the shematic view.
I found a method that gives me results equivalent to shader tree

But ... there is something that does not understand : how to make basic masks in my textures.
Basic example: a logotype with an alpha channel

the node "mix textures" allows to mix textures but the Alpha layer is not recognized.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hey there,

try the "Alpha Image" Node under Textures.

I hope this helps

thank you Hesekiel
I found a simple solution.
you have to use an octane mix texture.
connect 2 different Octane RGB Color,
and connect them in first and second texture,
and then connect the alpha file in amount ... and that's it
