Hi all,
I bought some transport models from Dosch today. The model comes in fine, but the textures didn't. The textures are bmp files and gave an Fz error when I tested an image import. So I did a batch conversion using "Graphic Convertor" to bmp again and keeping original file names. Was then able to view bmp's in FormZ, so they are ok now. Problem is, they are not being imported with the 3d model even after I direct the search path directly to the bmp's. I export obj's from poser all the time and always get the textures imported fine.
Zweb, I'm emailing you (.safe) an OBJ file with the textures as I got them from Dosch, can you have a look at it?

Cheers,

Des

Thanks so much for fixing it for me. Great tip on the mtl file! I'm now using the find and replace function in "text edit" to change the file format for the other models, don't like using bmp myself. You guys are the best.....
