So… in the following screen shot you will see my dual monitors. on the left side shows 3dsmax using the model obj and the texture file that blender keeps telling me its “missing” or pink. I did this just to see if their was anything wrong with the file. These are the files I will be using in blender, and are the ones giving me trouble.
the right screen shows the folder at the top left from where i’m dragging and dropping the texture file into blender bottom middle panel in the shader tab. (both the .blend file and the texture file are highlighted) I then link the “color” from the image texture box to the “base color” circle. as soon as i do this the model goes pink.
almost making this post earlier gave me the idea of trying a different search string “reasons for pink texture in blender” I thought i would be able to find other reasons that models go pink in blender. wasn’t successful. I really only keep seeing “pink means the texture files is missing” so i just checked to see if changing all the paths to absolute then to relative then back to absolute would help and no…
I really do not understand why this is giving me trouble. This should work… AAAAAHHH!!!
