Thread: trouble with 3d textures

    trouble with 3d textures

    Since shifting to 2018 and above I cannot reliably get 3D textures to load into Lightwave evenn using the Standard material. Can someone give me a work flow for this?

    Thanks in advance

    Did you mean "how to use procedural legacy textures inside of Node Editor".. ?
    (3D Textures are also nodes)

    You should try Layers > Color Layer node to read color from legacy procedural texture. There are also equivalents for Scalar and Bump data.

    If it's third party textures, like Denis Pontonnier's RMan collection, make sure the version you are using is current. Others have been abandoned, notably the IFW textures. These no longer work post-LightWave 2015.

    You can set them up in older LW version, and bake them to image map, with 4k x 4x resolution or so. Then reuse forever wherever you want them.
