problem with materials
on Oct 1, 2012 at 9:34:09 pm

Hi all,

I am a newbie, in fact started 2 days ago... I am having a problem with adding bitmap to material...well I can add it alright but on the cube(or sphere) the image shows multiple times. I would like it to be shown once, not repeat...?

I have been watching tutorials and it seems they can do it...can't figure out what i am doing wrong....

please help

It's called "tiling", and how it works depends on a number of things - your tiling settings in the material - whether or not you have UVW mapping turned on - and a number of other factors, all of which you need to learn. Start with the tutorials that come with Max on Materials and Mapping. Look on the Max Channel on YouTube. Go over the tutorials that are on the Help pulldown in Max itself - they are links to the online teaching. You have a long road ahead, but it's worth the work.
