I've been working on this file for a while with no problems, until now. In Material Preview mode all my objects appear bright white, apart from the trees at the back, which are black. All the other viewports seem to be working as they should and i can still render an image with all materials in place. I just cant see them anymore in Material Preview. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ That's weird. Could you save a new file, pack the textures in File > External Data > Pack All Into .blend (increases file size a bit) - And put the .blend here please: blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com (and edit the code bit to this post, so we can download it) - would help immensely with troubleshooting $\endgroup$ – Manu Järvinen Mar 4 at 11:11

    $\begingroup$ I've tried to upload it a couple of times but it seems to stall once it gets to about 75%. I have however spent the time waiting clicking a 100 different bottoms, and I don't know which did the trick but I've got it back working. Thank you for trying to help @ManuJärvinen $\endgroup$ – Ruth Mar 4 at 12:22
  • $\begingroup$ Oh man, I wonder if the packed .blend is too large. If it's under 30MB, you can upload it here: pasteall.org/blend and then post the link to it - OH, you got it working, nice one! Too bad if you can't post the solution for the ones who could need it :/ $\endgroup$ – Manu Järvinen Mar 4 at 12:24

    $\begingroup$ Yeah i was wondering if it was too large. Not sure whats considered too large though. This file is over 30MB but its a good tip for future issues. Thanks $\endgroup$ – Ruth Mar 4 at 12:29

Happens to me too, I usually solve this way:

Select EEVEE as renderer if it's not already, then go to Indirect Lighting and Delete Lighting Cache, then bake it again.

At this point switch between shading view modes, it should get fixed.

We should probably mark this as a bug, not 100% sure about it but looks like it.

  • $\begingroup$ This worked for me, but I had to bake indirect lighting first and then delete lighting cache. Thank you so much, I would have never of found this EVER. $\endgroup$ – Dominic M. Apr 19 at 6:05
