texture not found

Postby genjisama » Sat Apr 29, 2017 6:36 pm

Hi, I am new to this wonderful program called makehuman and I have a problem, I was trying to build a hulk-type character but somehow I can't use that skin. I saved the mhmat file in the v1/data/skins folder but I can't load it to work. Neither do some other skins. Do I have to copy the files in any other folder or maybe some skins won't work, or perhaps some skins only work with specified topollogies or what am I doing wrong? I was looking for info in the forum and in the FAQs but I couldn't find anything related to this specific trouble. Could you please help me? I attach a screenshot so u can see it. Thanks a lot

Try opening the mhmat file in a text editor. There should be a line "diffuseTexture [path to an image]". Make sure that the image is where the diffuseTexture line says it should be.

And where it should be is the same folder as the mhmat file when downloading assets from our repo get all the the files especially the image files make sure the browser you use does not change the file extensions both M$ Edge and MAC's Safari do by default supposedly to protect you from malicious files :twisted:

Enjoy the Choice :)

Thanks guys but first I put all files together in the skin folder as I usually do after checking the extension and later I copied the png file where the line says it should be after opening it with an editor. None of that worked for me :( but thanks anyway, don't worry I'll keep trying other things, don't wanna keep bothering you. Cheers!

Nonsense that why were here and you have no doubt notice we don't bite ;)

This is what is what the path as Harvey put in the mhmat file diffuseTexture ../textures/hulk_male_diffuse.png try editing it by removing
"../textures/" and put all the 3 Hulk skin files in one folder called Hulk_skin that should work for you the use the textures in the path he used assumes that the asset is placed with the skins that ship with MH have fun :)

Enjoy the Choice :)
