It's hard to know how they texture coordinates got there without seeing how you built the model. But you can always use the UV tool in Point Edit mode to assign coordinates. First apply the material to the faces. Then select all the faces that you want to assign the coordinates to and use the UV tool to move and scale the image.

The UV coordinates for two sides weren't correct. I made a try at fixing them.

Can you post your .an8 project? I'll take a look at it.

General Anim8or Forum / Re: Materials Library - Can't Use Files Button
« on: March 22, 2021, 12:33:50 pm »
I think the name is a bit misleading. The "File" button at the top of the material list indicates that the materials are available for all Objects in the project. The "Object" button indicates that they are only local to that one Object. Think of them as "Project Global" and "Object Local".

To make a global "library', first build a project with some commonly used materials. Then open that project, select the material that you want to use, use the "Edit->CopyMaterial" command to copy it, and in another project use the "Edit->PasteNewMaterial" command.

You'll still have to add any textures it uses to the new project - I should fix that so it's not needed!

You need to build the patch that gets extruded in the X-Y plane. The path that it is extruded along can be in any direction. Here's an example.

ianross I found an issue with the direction of spotlights in the ART renderer when they are attached to a bone. I'm working to fix that. If you find any similar problems please let me know.

johnar You should be able to do it in either order, or at least I thought so. Looks like another little bug. I'll fix it!

johnar the latest build 1400 fixes this and a couple of related issues.

ianross It should also fix the issue with attaching a light to a bone.

ianross you can't light a bone, but you can make a bone the light's parent which has the same effect.

Note: I found a problem where the light isn't being rotated properly when the bone rotates. Looking into it now...

I need to work on the position when you attach something. In the mean time, you can do things like setting the offset of the object to (0, length(bone), 0) when you first attach it and it will stay with the end of the bone.

Forgot to add: nice game of catch, johnar!
