Ryan TillElement 3D - Material slots not appearing when imported
by on Sep 25, 2013 at 8:29:00 am

Hey all, i recently began to learn element 3D. I have used 3D programs for modelling and composited using that method for a while now, but Element seems a simpler and faster solution for the smaller jobs.

However upon using it, i am facing some unusual importing issues. When watching one of Andrew Kramer's tutorials, he explains how the material slots for the object are determined based on individual textures applied in the 3D application.

I have applied four seperate texture's for my model and exported using the correct parameters, however when i import it into element 3d, only 2 material slots remain. I have tried multiple method's ranging from different materials, different material types, colors etc but nothing is working. I must be missing something simple which is right infront of my eyes.

If anyone has some insight into the problem, i'd be very thankful.

Thanks all!
