I'm creating a large freeway project and I'm utilizing UV textures to represent the asphalt and striping texture. When I assign the UV map to the roadway surface in Layout, the texture is blacked out. But when I render it, the texture looks fine. This doesn't happen all the time, but more often than not. My thought was this may be a memory issue, but my computer has 4 GIGs of RAM and the video card is a NVIDIA Quadro FX 3400 with 256 MB. The textures are TGA formats, and are approx. 3.5 megs.

Does anyone have any ideas why this happens?

Thanks,

Steve Rhyne

Maybe you created two sides polys and even though it renders ok, opengl could be seeing the wrong side, try flipping it. Also, I believe in layout under you display settings there might be something checked or unchecked that could cause that. Click around some. That's all I can think of.
