Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How do people get multiple textures into 1 texture & into 1 material?

I'm trying to figure out how people get over 2 textures into 1 texture & into 1 material then putting it on a object perfectly without the texture stretching?

When I make a object. alt text

As you can see I'm using multiple materials to define the object.

The object under is a store purchased object I was looking at to see how they made it with one material. alt text

My texture. 1/4 alt text

There texture. 1/1 alt text

So what I'm wondering is, how they added that one texture to suit the whole object so perfectly. And their object has only 50kb my object is about 150kb. My object was made on '3DS Max'.

My guess is they used some software to do that but what software is it? Anyone know?

If I'm not misunderstanding your question, you're wondering how they made that single texture wrap the whole object. This is pretty common in 3D modeling packages and 3DS Max most definitely has it. It is called UV mapping / unwrapping and multiple tutorials can be found all over Youtube. As to why their object is smaller, it could be any number of things. However, I'm just going to assume it is the difference in vertex count.
