Help with C4D / OBJ Files

Postby michaelgbarrett on 06/24/2018, 6:03 am

I bought an object of an orange tree with multiple textures. It opens great in C4D Lite but when I try and open it in Element 3D, the textures appear but the object is the default grey. Can anyone help me learn how to properly import these files or do you think this object needs to be modified? Thank you![img]

Are there physical image textures and or just colors?

You most likely have to set the transparency for the leaves etc too.

You also might want to check auto normals too.

Element seems to have at least brought in the textures, since they show up in the materials panel.

Does the entire tree disappear if you turn off that "Wire204..." material?
