Why is my Texture not displaying on a Plane in Element 3D.

HI,

I recently tried to attach a texture to a Plane I created in Element 3D The texture was downloaded as a PNG file, precomposed and designated to the texture 1 slot properly and when I applied the texture to the Plane as a diffused texture I get nothing. I have tried to designate other textures as well and got the same results. I hope i am explaining this correctly and can get some assistance or suggestions to resolve this. I really want to work with this texture in this project.

Thanks in ADvanced.

So you did prepare your texture and put it into precomp

7.jpg

then you put e3D layer and e3D on it and assign your texture in custom texture in e3d settings

5.jpg

after that in e3D settings you assign your custom texture to your pane

6.jpg

And nothing?
Is that what happens? But when you try to apply your texture in diffuse window (last picture bottom right corner) you can see your texture but you can't see it on your plane or you can't see it in settings either?

Hi

This is correct. What I see on the Plane model is the default (white) texture.

Thanks

Ok. So maby try to import any jpg file (does not matter what) and try to use as a texture and check if it showes. If it works - that meat that Element can see custom textures but for some reason can't see that exact precomposed texture of yours. Then we will look for that reason.

Correct.

I imported a JPG from file and used as texture and it showed up on the Plane Model But the Custom texture (Precomposed) did not show on the Plane Model. I even used a different jpg (precomposed as well) and it didn't show on Plane Model either.

Appreciate your efforts.

THanks

Make sure that your precomp was made as I showed on first image (Move all atributes into the new composition) and make sure that you put effects inside that precomposition not on that precomp layer.
And if maby you could show us or tell what is going on inside that precomp.

We will try tu figure out what is going on and why it is not working as it should but as a last resort you can just export that precomp a s image (if that is static texture) or as a movie clip (if that is animated texture) and just use those files as that texture.

Was this ever figured out? Mine is doing the same thing and for the love of it, I cannot figure out what's going on.

 

Thanks in advance!
