Can't make the new material look correct.

Recommended Posts

According to the threads I've read, and the Knowledge base for creating a new custom library material, wood for the ceiling finish, I thought I had all the settings correct; but when I attempt to apply  it via the ceiling structure dbx, it does not cover the entire ceiling.  I've tried changing the size of the capture i'm using for the texture. I checked and unchecked stretch to fit.  Changing from global mapping to unchecking global mapping bur still can get it right.  When I use the library file for reclaimed cypress that texture works fine.  I open its dbx and checked the setting for that texture, and used the same setting for the new material I had made.  I've attached a sample plan I was experimenting with, along with some screen captures. The interior decorator wants to use 3/4X 6 ship lap and have it painted gray. I found the web site, and capture a large Screen capture of the material the wanted to use.

Appreciate your help.

How about painting and existing material?

Bob,

 

You need to crop the pic so that you don't have any white space?  It also helps if you only have a square pic.  That way the scaling doesn't need to be different for each direction.

Not sure why it didn't work the first time I tried painting the mat'l. I attempted that before I posted the new thread

I did crop the pic I used for the texture, Joe. I also thought it was pretty square. Either I'm not setting up the dbx for the new material correctly or something isn't working correctly. I've done new materials of Photos to use as TV screens and worked fine but for some reason it isn't now? Thanks for the helps guys!

You need to Backup Entire Plan so the textures are exported. Or just post the texture as a .calibz file.
