Wrong UVW box mapping rotation/direction
« on: October 28, 2019, 05:28:19 PM »
Hello,

How can I fix the rotation on the side so it goes along the red lines that I have marked?
I'm using RC's box mapping feature here. Tried rotating mapping but it rotates on the wrong direction.



Thanks

Sure. You just need the index.xml file, right? Or otherwise where exactly Style properties are stored at?

Ok, rotation does not help in this case. As a workaround You can use Triplanar Map:

Okay but this method breaks as soon as you add a second part to an equation.
These two parts has to have different directions, although they belong to the same RC object:



How do I do that then? Or is it not achievable using RailClone? which would be kinda surprising and disappointing at the same time.

Hi - for maximum control (for example to have a different rotation on the end caps) I would set up a multi-sub object material that has the texture repeated 4 times, each rotated in 90-degree increments. You can then control the direction of the grain on the source geometry simply by switching the material IDs.

A sample file can be downloaded here: https://d.pr/f/hPHJhV

I hope that helps.

All the best,

Paul

I think we are expecting different results.
I still can't find a mapping solution for rotated segments.

Hi Dragan,

Yes, sorry. That was a reply to the previous question. I'm still taking a look at the rotated issue.

Cheers,
