noob texture question


im new to xsi - maybe sb can help me with this thing:

for some reason i cant see the checker in the viewport. it renders out, so no problem there, but why is there no preview in viewport?


Procedural textures don’t show in OGL mode. If you want to see the topology of the texture just apply a texture and use default image.



thank you.


it is possible to show it using a combination of lightmaps and uvs. i have found it not worth the hassle though.


Ok, interesting - didn’t know that. Besides being a hassle, is the quality good?



As good as the resolution of the lightmap you “bake” the procedural too basically, and yeah, it is a bit of a hassle.
