I'm currently working on scene from a tutorial where I have some boxes and wires scattered around a room (room is simply the inside of a polygonal cube with a texture applied), but am having a problem with the room texture dissapearing. The tutorial I'm following had these steps for the room model
-Create a polygonal cube (width 25, height 10, depth 25, subdivisions 1/1/1
-under modeling menu set select, edit polygons/normals/reverse followed by display/component display/backfaces (to see the inside of the cube more clearly)
-apply room texture
-selected one face of the interior of the cube and did a number of extrudes
-a separate face (the floor) is now having trouble displaying the room texture as a result
What's weird about it is that when I rotate the camera at certain angles I can see the texture, but even a slight change will cause it to disapear. This problem started happening directly after I extruded one of the faces to create the window shown in the screenshots below.
Doing the planer projection on the Y axis wasn't able to fix the problem, but it did take care of some other issues I was having. Thanks a ton for the suggestion even if it ended up fixing something else :) For now though I think I'm going to put it aside until I get a little better at Maya, having a blast working on texturing anyhow
