Sup yall. I have a texture problem. I'm trying to convert a model from an old version of Blender (2.49b) to the most recent version. However the problem with it is after re-linking the texture, it looks wrong. As you can see, the skirt cuts off into a flat color.

Here's what it's supposed to look like:

And here is what it looks like in the new version of Blender:

I've converted some other models the same way but they didn't have any problems. But this one does. Does anyone know if it's possible to fix that?

    $\begingroup$ Did you check in the shader "options" of the "Image Texture" Node, "N" panel in the shader view, regarding the blend mode? I would guess that the blend mode was set to a different option in the old version. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ This was the issue. I think the blend mode itself was fine, but there's a checkbox that says "Backface culling" that wasn't checked, and once I checked it, that fixed it. Thank you. $\endgroup$

As we can see here:

The texture's color space is set to "Raw".
Since it's a simple color data texture and in png format, it should be "sRGB", which is the default color space when you create an image texture node.

  • $\begingroup$ I fiddled with that already, but unfortunately it didn't fix it. If I change it to sRGB it looks like this: i.imgur.com/01aw3nb.png $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I think those were okay, but I managed to fix it by checking "Backface Culling" under settings in the material properties. Thanks for your reply. $\endgroup$
