What seems to be pretty much straight forward is not that forward to me. The subject is obj file. Upon import there is no texture showing on the object/. I tried to look on internet but there is hardly anything in regards to Blender 2.8 and above . If there is anything it’s quiet vague to be honest. Maybe I have problem understanding after all, don’t know to be honest. Would mind explaining to me how apply texture to obj file?
afaik you cannot import textures with a obj object, just material color information. This is in all 3d apps.
If the object has UV’s, adding the new material + textures should be fairly trivial, like in any untextured new object.
Hmmm…then what’s is the point of asset sellers providing OBJ file of something like this : single object but quiet a few parts that need different texturing? To be honest it’s a bit of work isolating all different parts in the UV editor at least for my level of knowledge.
Yeah, it’s always a bit of a balancing act, getting files made in other software & renderers,
In this case you need to swap the obj materials to Blender ones and re-apply the textures.
And for the glass you have to recreate something similar.
And looking at the texture file naming, it’s not a PBR metal setup. So you have to fiddle a bit here too.
I would not have a problem but I found other ( native ) format assets superior in general. I wish blend. format assets would more wide spread in such retailers like cgmood and alike. Kinda looking for a comprise here with least time and effort loss
I don’t do animation at all stills only at the moment though.
There are some really nice and affordable assets stores for Blender, each with their own Asset manager/addon. BlenderKit, Polygoniq etc. are well known names. There are some others that I don’t remember atm…
If it’s stills you’re doing, you might want to have a look at those stores. It will make things a lot easier to set scenes up more quickly. Quality is often very good on all parts of the model.
I never new about these ones, will definitely take a look into it. I do look for variety of assets for interior. For instance modern classic, traditional or modern French, art deco. Quiet specific to be honest. Would help me a lot if I could get some there.
