I have a .ply file that I obtained from a 3D scan. In textures view, I can see the textures but when I render it I cannot see the textures.

I think I have to add a material and a texture, but I cannot seem to get the colors from the scan I took. Any help?

  • $\begingroup$ What you saw in 3D view was the vertex color. Rendering needs materials or texture to be assigned. $\endgroup$ – Sergius Liu Jul 24 '17 at 2:16

Select the object of the imported model. In the properties editor, go to the Material tab and add a new material. For the new material, under Options, enable "Vertex Color Paint" checkbox. Now the colors of the model should show in rendering. enter image description here
