First, I am a PC user. Yep, one of the wretched few. I also use EIAS 8. I find it incomprehensible that I can’t bring an .OBJ file with UVs into EIAS 8 without OBJ2FACT or Form Z.
Is this crazy or just me? I can’t fathom this. I create a UV’d object in Silo, export a Fact file (also an .OBJ file) and can’t use the UVs in Electric Image. Am I doing something wrong? Is this the mark of a professional-level program (O.K. sorry, the hours of frustration creeping in)?
Anyone have any suggestions on bringing an OBJ file with the MTL textures into EIAS 8? Something simple? Something that doesn’t require purchasing another couple of hundred dollars of software?
My last ditch effort? Install Silo 2.1 (Currently using 2.0) where they’ve - hopefully - fixed UV import.
