View Full Version : Will paint no more!

10 October 2009, 02:11 PM
i was working on a model i made, after a while playing with its texture it suddenly decided to stop painting on my model.
did nothing special that could cause it, had no problem prior to that.
and sculpting still works, all other tools i played with to see whats wrong still work fine.
it just wont apply any changes to the diffuse channel on any one object in my scene,
i did see if i am om the right layer, tool, and channel, cant see whats wrong since i dont even get an error message.

have you tried deleting the diffuse layer and reimporting the texture on a new diffuse layer?

its not on any specific layer in the scene, all object cant be painted on anymore

Maybe your object is locked? You could press shift+f accidentally.

Still nothing...
could a file get bugged like that?

Try to create a new primitive object and test it. You can also reimport all objects into a new scene with higher subdivisions as a layer - maybe it will help.
Btw. did you check your UVs on higher levels? If it's not proper, you can recreate level UVs.

I just had the same problem. Everything else appears to be working, but I can no longer paint on models. I get some weird texturing artifact reminiscent of a video game gone awry, but no visible texture painting. This is on a Geforce; gonna test it tomorrow on my other computer which has a Quadro and see if the same scene is paintable.

have you used the shortcut for texture hide... the "up" arrow and "left" arrow..?
