2 uvws on one mesh
show user profile  kiriro
Hi everyone, first post :)
I've just received my max's student license and am now eagerly trying to move one of my characters from blender to max. Although max seems to be pretty well arranged I now have a slight problem: My character has 2 UV sets which I now both imported and assigned to 2 separate UVW modifiers on the mesh in map channel 1 and 2. I then created a Multi-SubObject material and 2 submaterials which I assigned my 2 textures and my 2 map channels to. However, If I try to render now, only my face texture is showing on the rendered image, my body (which should have 0% alpha for the face texture and 100% for the body texture) is just shown in grey.
I'm sorry for this is probably just a noob issue but I really can't see what I could've done wrong...
Thank you for reading!

PS: Do you know a tutorial for max which teaches you the basic shortcuts? because right now I only found out 20 or 30 of them and doing everything else with your mouse is just soooo slow xD

sorry for the double post, my problem was way simpler than I expected xD Yet I can't solve it yet...
I just found out that max doesn't seem to recognize my alpha whenever I try to blend or multi/sub-object my two sub materials. It always uses the material color as well... do you maybe have a tutorial about this somewhere?

Can you post any images to help explain things further?
Are your map channels uniquely unwrapped?
Did you have to unwrap/uvw map the object again or have you just applied a modifier and left it at that?
Have you set the textures in the material editor to use a second map channel? (Default is Channel 1)

ah wow thank you , I found my error. I imported the 2 uv sets from blender to max and it seems that one of them had been corrupted in the process... weird, because I now imported exactly the same uvw again and it works flawlessly xD And there I was thinking max was less buggy than blender :D
