View Full Version : art3dPaintCtx + Layered Texture node?

09-13-2010, 11:55 PM

I am developping a Multitexture paint tools under Maya 2009 but having to important issue.

Does someone know if there is a way to insert a texture path into a new art3DPaintCtx?
I didn't found anything in the documentation :

- http://download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2009help/Commands/art3dPaintCtx.html

I do not success to access to the Save/Edit Texture with MEL....

I also have another problem with the Layered Texture node.
I created this kind of shader :
- http://www.a.samavan.com/MultiTexturing_Test_A.png

I assign 5 "file" node to an Layered Texture.
And with the RGBA channel from a 6th texture I blend with an Over mode.

As you can see on the previous picture it seems working well but...

If I connect only 2 of them. I can scale the Uvs and see the result in the viewport.
But if I connect more than 2, the scale on the UVs doesn't work anymore. this is like all Texture will be connected file:///C:/Users/sama/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png file:///C:/Users/sama/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot-1.pngback to the first uvs set.

When I do a render with Mental Ray, it sometimes work... but... the idea is it works in the viewport....

Does someone knows what could be the issue?
I do not know much about shader programming but dunno if could fix the issue..

I am on Maya 2009.

Really thank you for your help :(
