View Full Version : 3d paint tool...befuddled.

03 March 2004, 05:37 AM
i made an object with the cv curve tool and just rotating and altering the curves, then lofting. i understand this is a nurbs object now, so i placed a colored blinn on it and now i would like to simply paint little tribal designs onto it. i'm guessing the 3d paint tool is the way to go, but when i select it i get a message saying that there are some objects without the right file map.
i don't get this. is there something i have to convert the object to?

Click on the Assign Texture map button in the 3D paint tool with the object selected.
