View Full Version : Image maps won't render

04-14-2003, 08:48 PM
I recently got a new computer and installed Lightwave 7.5b.

System specs:
Windows XP sp1
AMD Athlon XP 2400+
512 MB ram
NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4800 SE 128MB

Everything seemed to be working fine until I noticed that Layout is not rendering the image maps. You can load an image map in the surface editor using UV mapping or any other projection and the texture will appear on the model in the layout window (both in Layout and Modeler).
But it doesn't show up on the little sphere in the Surface menu and, more importantly, they don't render out at all.

Has anyone experienced this problem? What the hell is going on?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.:confused:

check if there is a alpha channel whithin the image. If so,
disable it in the image editor....

That might have been it. After reading your post I tinkered with the settings in the image editor. At first, nothing happened, but then after some more tinkering the maps started rendering. Anyway, thanks so much for your help joschy!:D
