[Q] UVW channels on object ... not enough for material

Recommended Posts

I'm getting this error message when trying to render grass.

I found this thread (http://www.formz.com/forum/old/messages/35953/61315.html) but still can't figure it out.

I'm on FormZ 8.6 and Maxwell v3.

I've already put an 8-bit PNG texture on the 'Shaded' material type of the Materials Parameter panel but it doesn't help.

Also, I do not understand what to do with the three buttons 'Update shade..', 'Preview' and 'Use MXED'. Which one do I click and where do I see the feedback which one is active?

Any help greatly appreciated.

No one at all who can help me out?

Even when I start a completely new project, draw a simple rectangular plane, add a physical sky and apply this grass MXM material, I still get this 'UVW channels on this object are not enough' warning.

OK, I finally figured it out: grass should be set through the Attributes for Maxwell panel. In the Materials panel, the Maxwell pane should be set to 'Translate shaded', *not* to 'Referenced MXM'. How counterintuitive is that?
