View Full Version : Problem with texture alignment

11-07-2003, 08:05 AM
Hi all, I have this little problem with my textures.
Im making a texture map and I cut my polys in equal parts to paste on the textures, problem is when I place the textures they dont alignt correct, even though they fit perfectly in photoshop.
The surfaces are equal in length and width and arent skewed or anything, I also tried autofit as well as UV mapping.
Is this a common problem or is there some sortah trick to make em fit.
I attached an example, if someone could help me out Id be really gratefull.

Tnx in advance.

Do they really fit exactly in Photoshop? Have you tried to offset them to check? Do they come out okay in a render - it may be that Modeler's OpenGL is not accurate enough for your needs...

Yeh they fit perfectly in photoshop, but perhaps it is the open GL since I keep having the same problem when I import it in Quest 3D wich uses OpenGL too....still any suggestions that might be helpfull are more then welcome :)

What resolution are your images? OpenGL prefers square images and the resolution should be multiples of 2 like 32x32, 64x64 up to 1024x1024 pixels. All other images are re-rasterized for the OpenGL display buffer which will cause discrepancies at the seams.

I already took that in account, the images are 512*512 :)
