  1. When I have the issue you are describing (when ALL the missing textures are in the same folder, and formZ finds, oh, the first 3)

    I find that going to the "project info" tab and then "linked files" usually works.

    I just had a project where FZ was finding all but 5 files, even though they were all in the same directory.

    When I went to "linked files" folder and relinked the first file, it found the other 4 by itself.

  2. I had a few minutes to test this and it works. The only issue I am having is I can't see the map on the object until I render it. 

    I tried using the "drag and drop"  as well as the "paintbucket" methods of applying the map to a surface while holding down the command key

    See screenshot. Is there a workaround for this, or am I just doing something wrong?2066323066_ScreenShot2019-11-01at8_12_17AM.thumb.png.7cad047294f147ad1da96ff8b081279d.png


  3. This is exactly why I don't like the idea of having to buy additional software. You never know when it might be dropped.

    I used C4D for over 10 years. It came with a very good rendering engine and I never needed to buy or upgrade anything outside.

    Yes, there were other renders available (including Maxwell) but for my day to day needs the bundled renderer was excellent.


  4. I have always wanted a 3D program that would be able to import the maps with the name I already assigned them in Photoshop.

    This would be a real time saver when I have an object with multiple maps.

    For example a carton with; DCD1234 Drill front, DCD1234 Drill back, DCD1234 Drill top, DCD1234 Drill bottom, DCD1234 Drill left side, DCD1234 Drill right side

    Right now I tend to use copy and paste but having the maps come in already named would be terrific.

    Please, please, have this version be stable with components! Looking forward to trying it.

    I hope they scrap the whole "component" thing and replace it with something better.

    It has been a problem for me since day 1. 

  6. Texture map update bug has been going on since V7. I generally have to close the app to get it resolved.

    Also, sometimes maps on an object won't show in the preview mode but render normally.

    I guess I have just gotten used to it.

  7. Yes this also happens to me from time to time. I haven't been able to isolate the cause. Just have to restart the app.

    There is also the bug with "show controls" in the sub-d mode. Sometimes it won't turn off and I have to restart to cure that too.

    The other ongoing issue I have is the immediate crash when I try to use the "rounding" tool. That's been going on since V7. Doesn't do it every time.

    But often enough I know to be sure to save before I click on it.

  8. Hi Michele,

    Sorry to hear that.

    If you could post more info, someone might be able to help.

    Some more details about when it occurs, some info about your computer and graphics card. Things like that.

    Does anyone else in your company have the problem, or are you working solo?

    I have not seen that particular error code
