3D Paint tool (not paintable on new session)


sttp: when I continue a texturing session in maya (7.0) the next day, seemingly the 3d paint tool does not allow me to continue painting my textures.

I get this error:
Quote: // Warning: Some surfaces have no file texture assigned to the current attribute. //
the only solution I can see is editing the tripleShadingSwitch inputs in hypershade.

I haven't changed any settings or edited the model. just painting the texture and saving the .mb file when finished for the day/session.

btw: I also use the "Assign Textures" button, that allows me to continue but it makes all my OTHER parts black (no map) ...the only solution is tweaking the tripleShadingSwitch as I said.

anyone got any ideas? thanks

well first make sure you have the texture assigned to only one object, having it assigned to multiple and trying to paint will give that error every time.

all those texture files and temps just get saved to the 3dPaintTextures folder in your project folder, if you had to just make a new shader and use the newest map in the color slot and start painting again.

thanks guys!

.ma? hmm I'll give it a try.

Quote: well first make sure you have the texture assigned to only one object....

that's where the tripleShadingSwitch is usefull as it allows working on multiple object pieces as needed. I need to see all the parts at the same time as I paint (important texture templates for further development in painter). so if needed I manually edit the tripleShadingSwitch for my needs.

just wondering if anyone had any work-arounds for this? (ie: so there is less of a headache while working on it)
