3DS Max 2009 - Applying Textures?
show user profile  KugarWeb
I've just installed 3DS Max 2009 and I am having problems applying textures to objects. I've got as far as loading my image into the Material Editor but the software won't let me apply the texture to any of my objects, what am I doing wrong?

I remember doing this before in the same version at University but now I can't seem to find the option. Before I could just click "Diffuse" and select an image and it would work although I couldn't get that option to appear.

Ah yeah, it's probably also worth mentioning that I am a complete newbie to the whole 3D Design thing, I'm much more used to Photoshop and the rest of the Adobe Family!!

Did you drag and drop the material onto the object? Did you click on the little checkered box to have it display the texture in the viewport? Have you walked through the provided 3DS Max tutorials that come with the program?
