This is for Blender 2.49b. I am using this because the plugin PrPRP does not work with any other version of Blender, and I wanted to learn and master this older version of Blender. I am making a set of tutorials that show the viewer how to make their own ages for Myst Uru Complete Chronicles (Uru CC) and a similar process works for Myst Online Uru Live (MOUL.)
OK, so two issues… I click on Image and browse for an image. In the File Browser window how do I see thumbnails of my images? If there is no way to see thumbnails, can I make the text any bigger?
The other thing is, how to I apply multiple textures, within a single material, on an object? Or should I do multiple materials, each with their own texture? Which way is the best to go, why, and in the case of using multiple textures in a single material, what is the exact correct process?
Also loosely related to this… Should I mark seams for each area that will be using a different material/texture? So I have seams at the bottom and tops of the walls since the wall tops and the floors will be different textures? I was just projecting to view because I found that easier.
I have information on using multiple materials, and will be experimenting.
Thank you for your help.
