File dependencies
show user profile  sorin_g

I downloaded a model of a car from a website, but unfortunately the texture files are missing. Anyway, I will try to create my own textures but every time I try to render the model, I receive this annoying alert with the missing files. I know the alert can be disabled, but my question is where could I edit the file dependences to let them go away?

Thank you.

Thanks for the quick answer, but I am not trying to repair the path (since I don't have those textures), I only want to remove the file associations.

ah right sorry, hmm well as long as you know the name of the files, you can go file-->summary info, then look for the filename down the list at the bottom of the window, take note of the material name, open the material editor, click 'Get material' make sure 'scene' is checked then look for the material name down the list.

(alternatively you can uncheck 'root only' (in addition to checking 'scene') in the 'get material' window and it will show you a list of all the maps used but i find this is a little more confusing than the summary way)
