All I did was edit the texture in GIMP and now the decal texture won't show in my render. I tried renaming... no go. I spent half a day now trying to get it back.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is my blend....

EDIT: I'm an idiot. I was working on an alternate node setup in the node editor that wasn't connected to a material output. I didn't realize until I zoomed out and saw the real node setup. It works as expected now.

I got it to show by simplifying the material and making sure I had a material output node. The use of the alpha here is a little confusing, but I suppose if you can get one showing and then use the alpha to set a separate shader of another color then you might work it out.enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for trying. I am the biggest idiot. I just realized I had an alternate node set up off screen but the one I was editing wasn't connected to material output. Seeing your post made me go look for the material output so thanks for that. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If you zoom out you will see the other node setup. It is working as expected now. $\endgroup$
