Okay - So I know I am a complete noob to 3ds.

I can't even figure out how to do basic texturing.

Trying to put a texture on a scroll, but on the rolled up paper, it only covers the bottom part of the paper. Its like the top is transparent.

And my wood rod looks aweful.

Using 3ds 2013

Can you help?

I can point you to the places where you can help yourself. Here's one:


You can also start working on the wealth of tutorials which come bundled with Max, as well as the hundreds of tutorials here:


Texture mapping is not something you just hack around at, hoping you get the right result. It has to be learned. There is nothing in the world of 3D software which is intuitive...you have to read the manual, do the tutorials, and then do them again until they sink in. I've been working with Max for over 12 years, and I've barely scraped the surface of what it can do.
