help with texture maps
on Oct 5, 2009 at 5:41:39 pm

Hello people, Newbie question again... I am working my way through the tutorials on Maya 2010 and it's Polygon texturing/lesson 1 UV Texture mapping/applying a texture.
I have got to point 8 where I have to apply a Photoshop PSD file to a cracker box, expecting it to update and be visible in my scene but its still a grey box. I have followed the instructions carefully and assigned a new material and applied the texture map but I cannot see any map on the cracker box.
When I try to render the scene, the box does have a map that's visible. Anything I am doing wrong?
I am sure its a simple thing

It sounds like you just don't have the view pane set to have hardware texturing turned on. Go to the shading options in your view pane and you'll see it. You can also toggle it on by hitting "6".

Thanks again
