Hi, Im new to blender and have a question?

Post  andreadixon on Tue Jan 27, 2015 4:01 pm

Hi, I have made just a box and add textures to it but when I export it to any format I do not get the textures, how can I save the model with the textures in the folder that want to put it in. Thank you Smile

Hi there and welcome to the forum.

So right off the bat I'm going to assume you're exporting the model to either be used in another program or in some other capacity outside of Blender. The most common file type that you'll want to use is *.obj. Now, I'm also going to assume that your texture is currently applied just using the texture panel with the texture coordinates being set to generated with projection type being box. This will only preserve the texture data within Blender and will not export with the model. Instead, what you'll want to do is UV unwrap the model and apply the texture that way. There are plenty of tutorials online about UV unwrapping, and once the model is unwrapped you should then be able to export the model, however, you'll then have 2 assets to import to what ever program you plan on using the model in, the model itself and the texture image.

Hi, I'm working on a 3d mmorpg game, the name is 100 Realm's, The game is set for a new world its not like how we live here on earth, there's going to be 100 realms which is like 100 worlds, and 1 world will be really big, the basic story line, is that basically you be come the ruler over all 100 realms. I'm really just starting it and I'm just getting stuff setup I've done much of the programming but its base off the engine of ogre 3d, and 3 other 3d engine and its just me in the project right now, just getting ready for game play to test and so off a YouTube video when its done I will post it here, but ya that's really all I've done right now I have not came up with that big of a story line yet just mainly making models and doing some network test for the server and client. Very Happy Thanks for asking Very Happy
