With a clean install of Blender 2.8 on OSX when I apply a texture like Gradient or Checkers on a Principled BSDF shader it only shows it on the object in Cycles, not in EEVEE and Look Dev mode. Rendering gives the same result as the viewport.

Cycles: enter image description here

EEVEE: enter image description here

Is this normal behaviour or am I missing something simple here?



This is normal, as these textures are not used in EEVEE. EEVEE only uses the standard "Texture" node, which references the textures in the "Texture" tab of Properties. Unfortunately, Checker Textures cannot be generated in EEVEE.

(THIS IS CORRECT) I'm not actually sure. (I was thinking of the wrong engine.)

  • $\begingroup$ youtube.com/… This is weird, in this tutorial he is showing the gradient texture in look dev mode. Isn't Look Dev also using Eevee? $\endgroup$ – Erik81 Aug 25 '19 at 20:41
  • $\begingroup$ @Erik81 Honestly, I'm not sure. Sorry $\endgroup$ – chirpywiz711 Aug 25 '19 at 20:46
  • $\begingroup$ Oh wow...sorry. I thought EEVEE was the same as Internal! Sorry. I don't really know what's going on then. $\endgroup$ – chirpywiz711 Aug 25 '19 at 20:52
