I was examining a sample scene that use a bunch of simple flat planes
with cloud image maps mapped onto them and wanted to examine these.
So, when I go to try and find the cloud image, I descover that I can’t
find the image anywhere! What’s the scoop? If they are using the image
in the scene, as I can see it right there, then where is it hidden?
So, after checking things out, I decide to see if I can find this image.
I read in the texturing area that it shows the image map as coming from
too bad there is no such folder on my system and I did a search just to try
and find this image to boot, and I finally found it, but here is what it really was called:
What the flip is all that!?
Is it trying to find the cloud image from the internet or something?
And if so, why isn’t the images that are being used in these sample scenes, on
my own system and not on the net somewhere where I can’t get to it or find it?
Never heard of this before and i don’t get it?
In fact, I’ve found that most of the images I see used in these scenes are not
anywhere to be found and now I have this feeling that they also are hidden
away on the net somewhere too, or where ever they are hidden away at?
And when I double click on an image in a texture window, it takes me to the same
placewhere I see some basic samples but not the one they’re using and even when
I see the one they’re using, it doesn’t want to automatically select THAT image and
then you have to try and find or figure out which image they were using, so I end up
most of the time just hitting the X (cancel) on the window so that I don’t ruin
whatever texture I’m working on.
And yes, I’m probably calling these things the wrong things, like a texture,
but that’s just to save time explainning which individual item,
like the Alphas or whatever.
Materials, I think is what I’m trying to say here.
And the sample scene I’m looking at, is the one called, Bali.
I hope you all understand what it is I’m asking about?
And yes, I did the install of the Extras Cd, so I would of thought I’d have everything
I need on my own system for deal with the sample scenes, but maybe not?
