I would appreciate the help - I am new at Lightwave (8), and am trying to apply a Photoshop jpg of cherry wood as a UV texture to an Illustrator eps of a wood molding I imported into Lightwave.
The UV texture's color looks all greyed out. And when I apply it, the texture is on one side only.
Could someone help me through this please?

Did you apply the texture in the color or diffuse channel?

Also, turn on double sided in the surface and it'll render both sides.

You might want to post a picture to give us more idea of what is going on ;)

I seem to have worked out the texture's color problem, but the texture isn't wrapping around the molding. Where is it that I find the "double sided" option to turn on as you suggested, Dodgy?

I have tried to attach the file here, to no avail. Do I export it? Today is not my day. Tomorrow's not looking too good, either.

Thanks a bunch for your help!

go into the surface editor and click on the surface you are using.
at the bottom of the panel there should be a box that says double sided. :newtek:
