I don't know if it's because I'm using the trial version or what. But I'm getting half the texture i put in also in black and white... What's going on?

WTF is going on indeed? A screenshot might help.

I wanted the texture to be 4048 by 4048... This is what happened. I just downsized it in Photoshop and now it's working but I don't understand that, because 9.6 handled large file... Ah well.

Check "automatic sizing", that should solve the repeating but if the semi circle doesn't center on the object the best thing to do would be to planar UV map perpendicular to the face or on whatever axis in "Map/UV Texture/create new UV map". Then just add the map in the texture editor as in choose UV instead of Planar projection, specify the map and image.

Oh oh, which dynamics? We're about 3 hours away from the New Year fireworks but we can see and hear it from here... plenty champagne though!!

Maybe Package the scene?

Nice! Happy New Years! I still have a whole 24 hours.

The problem is infinite bouncing/spinning.

Ya know what never mind, I'm going to manual animate this thing. I'll have to learn LW dynamics later, or just buy Maya.

HNY, thanks! Getting there... when you package the scene you have to also save out the FX files. I can't see whether you have or not because the scene file flips Layout. Looks like you probably don't need to either buy maya or go headlong into lw dynamics just yet though.

- the dogs are goin' crazy... the first round of firecrackers is on!:) Happy New Year!!!!

OK, bored with NYE now... about ten minutes away, onto the good stuff. Champagne I mean.

...Pretty ordinary fireworks too but hey seen em before.

- It won't calculate easily as in it's choking on something... the coin geometry firstly has uneasy combinations of subpatches and faces so mucked around with that.

Modified a few minor things ( hey I'm no expert) and saved the file and it seems to tumble OK now. Perhaps a bit too much...

Sorry, Off Topic -- Hey meshpig, would you mind posting a fullsize screen grab of your LW10 modeler and layout with your chosen colors? Very interesting. Also maybe post the settings as well?:thumbsup:

No prob... you might also find this series interesting. Unfortunately just shorts available online but it's BBC so you'll see them eventually I guess.

Diverse perspectives of the history of Christianity; this is just one of many episodes by different presenters all of whom have something interesting to say. Not to be confused with the American versions just "Christianity: a history of", channel 4.
