I made a badge in Maya and I was trying to place a PS image on it, but it won't show up. I see the connected files in the hpyershade window, but it doesn't show in the scene. I do see something if I rotate the image file in it's Attribute window it looks all squiggle. What I'm I doing wrong?
P.S. I at first made the outline of the badge using curves but it won't turn into a Planar shape??
Your help would be grateful..
make sure that when you created your material, you attached a PSD node instead of the regular image node. Took me a bit to find that PSD node for some reason when I started using PSD files.
I don't really agree with Alvaro though on using PSD files. I absolutely love them. You can save vector objects in them, use multiple alphas, plus you don't have to flatten the image and save an alternate version every time. I feel it makes me more efficient.
That being said, it doesn't really matter what you use as long as the final render is acceptable.
