Hi everyone.

So long story short, i've created a rigged cartoon model that which, i'm planing on having the facial features to be material tags just like Lego Movie.

I've manage to place the material and adjust the tag's size to fit the model , but realized that when i animate the model, the material tag wont stay still, rather it kinda leaves its designated location. So i've searched and found a solution which was sticky texture. Not only does it keep the tag where it should be in animations, it also keeps the tags place if i resize the model to fit my scenes.

BUT, when i start rendering, i've realized that sticky texture wipes half of the material tag itself. Here are the screenshots.



It's driving me crazy. I would apriciate any help on the matter..

I can't really tell what's going on without looking at the scene file, but you might try something else. I'm assuming that you're using flat projection on the texture (and thus need the stick tag)?

If so, instead of using the stick tag, right click on the texture tag and select "generate UVW coordinates" from the menu options. That should stick the texture to the mesh without the need for the stick tag.

Hi again.

Thank you for your answer. Though i was using spherical projection, i've done as you asked and now though i dont need sticky texture, again the texture is halfed and now i can see it being halfed even without rendering.

I've added the work file if you would like to examine. Please note that i'm planing on using sequences of pngs to manage facial animations. Im also using offset values to rotate the texture to give head turning illusion. If i slide the texture on offset V to some other value than the current one, i can see the face clearly. But thats a problem and not a solution.

Hey Adam,

I've just choosed all the polygons that was the main egg shape and rotate it 180 degrees. Now, when i render, i can see the texture being full. For some reason i think the part we were facing were the back end of the egg shape.

Actually i cannot even make sense of the situation but just wanted to point out i've gone the manual long way to fix what ever the problem was suppose to be (since apparently it ws not sticky texture). IF you can point out any mistake that would be fantastic though.

Best regards.

I think the problem was the way you set the offset and length in the texture tag when setting up the spherical mapping. It's more straightforward to use flat mapping. Since the character is somewhat flattened I think it looks okay. I made a second poly selection tag to limit the face to the front side.
