I can't get my textures to render on this model. The materials are assigned and the shader nodes are hooked up. I think. It shows up when I view in solid mode with the color set to "texture" (2nd picture). Won't show up in render view or lookdev. Not sure what is going on, any advice??

UPDATE:

I do have a few other materials/textures patched up the same exact way and they seem to be working if that helps at all...

UPDATE: picture of UV mapped correctly, right? shows texture only in solid mode w/ texture color.

  • $\begingroup$ why are you connecting the Color output of the second texture node to the Alpha input? You should connect Alpha to Alpha $\endgroup$ – Tareyes Sep 29 '19 at 9:15
  • $\begingroup$ thanks for the correction! doesn't solve problem, though, same issue...?? $\endgroup$ – goldenmommy Sep 29 '19 at 9:29
  • $\begingroup$ Can you share the .blend file? $\endgroup$ – Tareyes Sep 29 '19 at 12:46
  • $\begingroup$ updated post with link! $\endgroup$ – goldenmommy Sep 29 '19 at 17:32
  • $\begingroup$ I'm sorry, the .blend file is not working (it might have been a corrupted file?). Please check that your file is saved properly and share it on Blender Exchange blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com Also, be sure to pack all the textures and other assets in the .blend file before saving $\endgroup$ – Tareyes Sep 29 '19 at 18:57

The reason why they don't show up is that the UV unwrap is not done properly.

If you select the eyes in Edit Mode, you can see that the vertices are all in the bottom right corner, where the texture is transparent (so there is no color data). To change that, just position the vertices on the eyes in the texture and you are all set!

This is what you have right now (the wrong way):

And this is the right way:

  • $\begingroup$ bizarre, that's not even what shows up on mine. mine shows the spider web like you have on both eyes! see the first picture i uploaded. that's not what shows up when you check in the .blend file? what tool did you use to select the eyes? i'm just grabbing the eyes from the material assignment. updated original post to show you what i mean. $\endgroup$ – goldenmommy Sep 29 '19 at 20:31
  • $\begingroup$ Your first image and my first image are the same, the only difference is that my UVs are highlighted, so they are orange. To select your UV, select the eyes in the viewport, then in the UV Editor press A (select all) or use the _box selection tool $\endgroup$ – Tareyes Sep 30 '19 at 7:10
  • $\begingroup$ You will see you UV becoming orange, like in my image. Press G to move them on the eye and scale them as needed. $\endgroup$ – Tareyes Sep 30 '19 at 7:22
