I've been having trouble getting the textures to show up while rendering a character I've been working on. It'll show up while on the texture view but when I go to render, it'll be completely black or transparent. How do I fix the textures not rendering.

Okay, so here's your problem: enter image description here

Your image node settings for your textures are set to "Clip" when they should be "Repeat". As you can see by my screenshot, it now works.

  • $\begingroup$ Thx for help. Does that work for all the problems like that or is more complex than that? $\endgroup$ Mar 18, 2019 at 22:30
  • $\begingroup$ For the most part, yes. You virtually always want that option to be set to Repeat. That's why it's the default option. ;-) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Honestly I've never noticed. I just assumed that the picture would work just throwing it in there, plus images as planes does the hard part of using a texture in cycles. $\endgroup$ Mar 18, 2019 at 22:47
