View Full Version : Surface not there in Layout

10-18-2008, 06:19 AM

When i draw a polygon with pen tool in Modeler,
apply a colored surface,
and import this object into Layout,
I can not see the colored polygon in any view or perspective.

Even when I submit a texture to it in Layout,
it's not there.

I checked that OpenGL textures is activated in preferences.

As you notice I'm a newbie in Lightwave, but I did the excercise twice in my classroom and then there was no problem. Neither my teacher or other students are helping me now, and the excercise is set for tommorow.
Any help is very appreciated !!

Could it be that it's a single-sided poly pointed away from the camera? When you set its surface texture, try clicking the "double sided" option, and see if that helps?

Sadly it doesn't.
could it be that i forgot to set some option?

Have you actually saved the object?

cause in Layout i can see the path in Textured Shared Solid Wireframe view.
But no fill / texture color
