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"

Texture oddly repeating vertically on a cylinder

Hi Guys,

I'm sure I've done this wrong but I've never had an issue simply applying an image to a plane. I'm trying to make a bottle of alcohol, captain morgan for example. The UV coordinates in the node editor are untouched, but it repeats vertically like this:

This is what the node editor looks like, I'm just expecting this to wrap around the cylinder one time.

How can I get this to wrap properly?

that means you havent unwrapped your mesh properly. you can try to adjust it a bit with a texture coordinate node (hold down the U-key and left-mouse click) and adjust the V value.

That said, its better to go back into your 3d program and unwrap your bottle better.
