View Full Version : Colour maps

Hello all,

I'm learning lightwave at the moment and last night i was trying to use a colour map, where you select the points and it's meant to shade the object. I couldn't get it to work. The tool was selected but when i clicked on the objects (anywhere) nothing happened. is there something obvious i'm doing wrong. any suggestions gratefully received.

It is highly likely you are editing a color map that isn't assigned to any surface (or at least the surface your painting on)...

Open up your surface editor, click the Advanced tab en make sure the Vertex map you want to be applied to this surface is activated as the Vertex Color Map (the pulldown thingy)
