Generating KML and google tiles from individual band images

Hi I am using images captured from Micasense RedEdge camera for processing in Pix4D. The camera captures and stores images in the individual bands (RGB, NIR and Red Edge). I encounter this msg “[Error]: Generate KML: invalid geotif - expecting RGBA geotif!” when I tried to generate kml and google tiles from the images. 

Is there anyway to generate the google tiles and kml files from individual band images? 

Hi Yinrui,

For multispectral images, the ortho cannot be exported as KML. The Index Map can be exported as KML file by clicking on Export, next to “Colored Index Map (GeoTIFF and GeoJPG (JPG)” on the right sidebar in the Index Calculator. However, there are no Google Maps tiles available.
