This problem is driving me bonkers. The question is whether the attached 32-bit PNG file contains anything other than a black and white Silhouette of a hand offering a soda. A long time ago, that file which is Alpha was paired with the bottle and hand. However, I removed the color version but it seems to follow the Alpha file everywhere.
This is the test that I very much would appreciate if any of you folks perform. It is really simple.
(1) Create a box
(2) Drop the file attached on the Slate Material Editor. That is when the mystery begins, the icon is colorful, with the bottle and hand.
(3) If you assign that material to the box, the bottle and hand appear out of nowhere.
I have tested this in 3 computers. In Maya I assigned what I claim to be just black and white, and the bottle appears. I perform “Send to 3ds Max” and sure enough the bottle, color and hand are still there.
Photoshop and other viewers simply show black and white.
