I’m new to Blender and I’m having a little trouble getting used to the interface. I am trying to paint a texture [image] onto a mesh in the 3d view, but for some reason my brush refuses to do anything. Also, when editing the scene in textured mode the mesh appears solid white and when I render the scene the mesh isn’t there at all, but if I play the scene it not only appears but is textured “properly” (the texture isn’t meant to be well-done; I’m just trying to work out the controls).
I have the Essential Blender guidebook, but following its directions in chapters 9 and 10 doesn’t isn’t helping [i.e. they don’t seem to produce the same results for me as for the revered Blenderhead authors]. Can anyone offer some insight? I just bought Genetica so I’m eager to try out some custom textures!
I’ve uploaded the .blend below-- the mesh in question is giant slightly distorted Suzanne above the domino simulation.
