I'm working on a large piece of terrain, and it's gone pretty decently so far. I have added a 'snow' macro to the mix now to get some lovely snow on the major peaks. Now, getting just the right settings with only the tiny preview window is a nightmare in itself, though not the main issue I am having. I have found a good setting and it's outputting a heightmap and a snow height map. I feed the snow depth map to a greyscale colorizer device and then merge the results with my coverage map. It all looks pretty right in the preview window but when I save the file or overlay it for a 3d view large portions of the snowy peaks are no longer snow coloured.

This screenie should make it clear.

You can clearly see the preview on the left shows snow patches all over the map while the main view has only 1 tiny patch at the top of a mountain.

Any help would be appreciated!
