noob texture question


#1

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?


#2

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.


#4

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


#5

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.
