Drawmode Render options


(shadowman99) #1

I would like to set a stage for modeling and map a blueprint to the surfaces. I would like for the textures to be visible in preview mode. How can I make this happen?

What I have in preview mode:

This is what I want:

I’ve seen this done in a demo (http://home.att.net/~alexander.michaels/Kate3-packed.blend) and tried contacting the author, but maybe somebody here can clue me in. I did RTFM, but no luck.

You need to UV-map the drawings on the rectangles. Then you’ll see them also in the editor. A tutorial for doing that you find here:
