Texture problem
show user profile  mic
Got a problem people.
I downloaded some great plants for max but am having texture issues.
With the download I got one folder with the max plant files all textured up and a second folder with all the textures.

Now the plants are all textured with jpegs that are in the other texture folder but max is not recognising a path to get those textures and place them onto the plants so when I open a plant it is just grey but when I open it's material it has all the neccessary jpegs right there.

How can I get the plants to find the texture jpegs in the oher folder without me manually going into each texture paramater and individually telling it to grab the jpeg from he other folder.

I couldn't get a material library to work. How do you make a working material library coz I think this should solve my problem. Or is there another way?

Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers

Have you configured > customise > user paths > external files and added the texture folder so Max knows where to look?

Mic, would you be willing to share where to download these plants and textures? I could use them in some of my scenes, and I'm sure others here would love it too. Thanks!

I got them off a friend but I believe he got them from a great 3d graphics forum called cg Persia.
I'll try to find out more details and post a like if I can.
