I’ve used various 3D packages for recreation for about 10 years now, primarily LightWave 3.5-7 and Maya 6. Yet I can’t figure out how to texture or material a surface in Blender. I know there is plenty of documentation out there that covers this but still I look at a surface I want to texture and I just can’t seem to figure it out.
I select a series of primates I want to assign to a new material; I create a vertex group, then create a new material and click assign. When I click on the color it changes the color of the object, not the material I thought I was working with. Furthermore when I’m in the material window the materials I thought I was creating aren’t there.
So I’m just really confused – this can’t be hard so I donno why I’m struggling with something so basic.
