Image Mapping on Object (having issues)
on Jul 30, 2012 at 2:39:51 pm

hi...
i have a normal sphere.....
yellow material applied to spere....
and then another material (directly after the yellow mat.) with an .ai image.(transparent)... nothing else is on. (the color of the material with the image is white.... )
(blending mode on multiply)....

i'd like to simply overlay onto the object....

darkening the yellow mat? I don't understand that, what do you want just the eyes and mouth and not the background? Assuming so, make the color of the smiley mat Normal (not Multiply) and add a Transparency channel to the mat and add the smiley image to that too.

Thanks for your help, Brian....
I did what you said and nothing happened..... wasted alot of time
then I looked through the manual....

I was using AI Files or PNG's ..... c4d does not recognize their Alpha channels.....so i was running into issues.....
I outputted as a TIF and I used your advice..... and it took 5 seconds to set up

Thanks.....

Note to self: First Manual, then COW
