Cycles Image Texture ... weird problem

Post by Jamuro » Thu Jul 12, 2012 10:39 am

Hi

I have a problem with textures in cycles.
In textured mode the texture shows up fine but as soon as i render it the mesh is black.

I have light so that shouldn't be an issue.


A screen of my node setup and the UV unwraped image:

Here a Link to the Blend File (in case that it is needed)
http://www.file-upload.net/download-454 ... blend.html


In the Blend File select the Object "Moewe" which is the parent of the the mesh "Moewe_LowPoly"

The other "Moewe.001/2/..." Objects are doublicates for a group.

The Mesh of Moewe_LowPoly" is on Layer 6 atm ... to make it easier.


I am gratefull for any help you can offer.

Thx

I've had similar problems with Mapped Textures in Blender 2.63 - and it seems to stem from the depth in your folder hierarchy on your Harddisk.
I've had one Picture that showed itself only if it was on the surface of the Harddisk or at least only one or two folders deep. After that it rendered black or unpredictably....one time there...one time not. I hope this helps and I hope this you be taken to a developer, who knows what to do with this info. ;) I have no idea, where to post these Bugs at all.

We have a Bug Tracker for just this purpose:

Good Idea but i think i tested that already ...

I made Blender pack all files ... and unpack them again (i ve heard that cycles + packed images == trouble)

This resulted in a new folder with all the textures for the project.
All files were there and not damaged.


At first i thought it might be the particle System i am using to create and control the mesh(s) but even the "originals" which formed the group for the particle System to use have the same issue.

My last thought was the the uv mapping failed somehow ... and this is where i hit a wall.
I checked the uv and it looked nice BUT ... if i switch in Rendered Mode from UV maping to for example Normals or i think even generated produced something.

It was all trash and not even remotly what i wanted but i think it has something to do with the uv or how cycles interprets the uv map i made (and used to create the texture)


If anyone with experience in UV unwrapping meshes in cycles could take a fast look at the blend file ... or/and could give me some pointers, that would be great.

Hi,

I saw your blend file but you haven't packed the texture files with it.
can you upload the file again with texture files?

Oh sry my fault ... this one should have it (hopefully).

Blend file:

In case that it didn't work ... here are the textures as images.
