Problem when importing .dae file

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I started making furnitures on Blender, and everything looks great. Even when importing with SL, the preview looks nice, with shadows and all those great effects.

However, when I import on SL, it looks bland, the texture is just filling up everything and it's horrible. Does anyone know why? I can send a .dae file via private message to whoever wants to help. I joined the pictures of what it looks like.

Thanks :)

It is a bit hard to tell from your photo but it looks like you mapped the UVs but didn't export any shadows with your texture. If you are using Blender Render then you typically would bake and save an Ambient Occlusion map and then layer your texture (in this case a blue weave fabric for the main area) on top of the AO and use "multiply" to blend them together and then export.  In Blender Cycles you would bake the shadows along with the fabric texture saving some after upload steps. 

If you are using Blender Cycles, this may help.

Good luck.

@Chic Aeon Well I thought baking worked but apparently not as it says 'No objects or images found to bake to'. The textures are all there and showing up.

If you are in Cycles like in the video you need to have an image texture for EACH material (you probably have two) that is not connected to the node group so that Blender knows what to bake too.  Again, in the video :D. Good luck.

I'm not sure about Cycles, which I don't use myself, but if you are just using Blender straight, you need to create a new image (with the drop down menu at the bottom of the Image/UV window) so that you have a location to save your AO, UV map, or texture images to.
