Hi all,

 

I am new to Aero so sorry for my ignorance. I am trying to import a zip folder with PNGs, OBJs, and MTLs but when I do so on Mac it only displays the first frame PNG. Does anyone know how I can import my zip folder so it displays everything and not just the first frame PNG. Any help or recommendations are appreciated, thanks.

It works prefectly here. Check the following: Let's say that you have a model called ABC. I typically then name the folder as well as the model files ABC. Make sure that the reference to the material file in the OBJ section refers to the correct material file name (MTL) and that the material file refers correctly to the picture file name. (PNG or JPEG file). If you use a text based OBJ, these things are easy to locate with any program that reads text.

Thanks for the response. So if I'm understanding you correctly, I need uniform file names across OBJ/MTL/PNG in order for it to import correctly? Currently, my folder is called "Anthony w_vest" but the files are called "20k_frame_001.MTL/OBJ/PNG." Would I need to rename them to something with Anthony w_vest? Thanks for your help.

It's good practice to do this as it helps keeping track of things as a unit, but there is more. If the files is a text based OBJ file, the main .OBJ file should have a reference to the material file name (MTL), for example: "mtllib ModelName.mtl". Further more, the material file (MTL) again refers to the image file, for example "map_Kd ModelName.jpg". If you change the names of the files inside the folder, you need to make sure that the interal references match the new names. The main thing is that all files reside at the same (folder) level in the file system of the computer. If the export is well organized, all this will work without any problem. At least it works well for me. The image shows an attempt to stress it by importing a flood of models, but I got bored after 25 models....
