Exported Object--Wrong/Missing Colors...???

Postby Blalack77 » Sun Jun 10, 2012 7:35 am

I created two trees and exported them as .obj files to use with Terragen 2. They both looked perfect rendered in Blender but when I placed them in Terragen, they were missing colors. The leaves were a brownish color instead of green, so I'm not sure if it was a "lack" of color or just the wrong color. But, what could this be and what kind of fixes might I implement? If I'm creating an object solely for export, do I need any kind of lighting (lamp/environment/etc) from Blender or just the basic object?

A visual from terragen of the problem I'm having...

I dont know anything about Terragen, but I will take a stab at this..

Are you applying a green texture to your model, or are you just changing the material color to green in blender?

If the latter, then that is probably your problem.

I'm not sure about the nomenclature but, I used pictures of actual leaves for the textures. I photoshopped them to have transparent backgrounds and tried saving the pics in all different formats from GIF to TGA to TIFF to PNG. I followed http://blendernerd.com/making-trees-in-2-59/ to a T. It looked fine in Blender...I'm attaching a visual of the Blender render: Image

So I'm not sure what goes wrong between Blender and Terragen. I don't know if it's a simple lighting problem or a setting or some complex texturing. Any thoughts?

Copy the .mtl files along with .obj files.
