Textures not loading correctly
« on: July 16, 2019, 11:40:17 AM »
I have come across an issue where some textures in the preset libraries dont seem to load and don't render (I am using Vray)

Geometry appears in the viewport as a point cloud but renders are blank.
I have also loaded the texture into the mat editor and the textures don't appear in there either.
The textures are in the correct folder just dont want to load for some reason  ???

I am new to Forest pro and just starting to get to grips with its capabilities so any help would be appreciated !

Hi

Can You please attach some screenshots/max file to illustrate the issue?

Hi, thanks for the quick response!

Unfortunately the max file is too large to send but here is a screenshot showing the scene and material editor.
In this case the leaf sub-materials 2 and 3 are not loading or rendering, but other textures are fine.
(The forest itself is hidden atm - the tree in the viewport isnt part of the scatter).
Everything seems to render fine except for several textures in the forest pack object which means atm I have mostly invisible forests :).

I am using Max Design 2013 (64bit) and V-Ray 2.40.03

Please open Asset Manager (Shift + T ) and refresh the list.
Can You please attach screenshot of this window?

Here is a screenshot of Asset Manager.
I tried manually configuring user paths on the mssing textures but no luck so far...

Thanks. You Asset Manager shows all maps are found. No problems there.
One note do not pick material from ForestPack object itself(If You see *automat* in material name You picked wrong ForestObjects Dynamic material, do not use that material ).

Pick materials from withing ForestPack Rollout, "Material" Button:


What object/preset are You using ?
Are You rendering Locally or with network rendering?

I am rendering locally.

None of the presets/3D geometry render correctly some textures appear but most are missing from the forest material and at render time.
All the textures are in the right place and I have tried re-installs of both Max and Forest Pack to no avail.
Interestingly 2D billboards are working fine.

Maybe a compatibility issue with my versions of Max/VRay would be my last guess.

I can still use Forest Pack with custom objects but its a shame not to be able to access the fantastic presets.

I am sorry to hear You are facing these issues.

What ForsestPack / vray versions are You using?
Can You press "View Image" button and see the texture map for those troubled materials?



Please create a minimal scene and send it to us to investigate.

I can view the texture map by pressing 'view image' and it displays fine.

I have recently tried another test with a lawn preset and noticed the sub-materials containing textures for the grass and 'dead grass' were not showing. I have found if I create a new basic vray mtl in these slots and load the missing textures as diffuse map they render fine. Could there be something in these particular sub-materials that could cause this 'missing textures' issue?

I have sent a file previously and you had no problem rendering it at your end.
I am using the latest update of Forest Pack pro along with Vray 2.40.03

Please try updating Your vray to 2.5. Save version minor updates are free, as far as I understand.
