Very newbie: basic materials questions

27 January 2015 03:34 #1187
I find the manual quite difficult to use for the most basic questions…

I would like a basic tutorials to understand material export. Questions like…

1: Should I use Blender Render engine?
2: What are the basic prerequisites to export material and use texture shaders?
3: Why my exported materials sometimes are pink?

Hi,

It's a good advice. We are thinking of making a series of short tutorials on some basic questions. They will cover most common questions including your 2-nd paragraph.

Should I use Blender Render engine?
In future we'll add our own render engine option so that it won't be any ambiguities at this point. For now - yes, you should use Blender Render

Why my exported materials sometimes are pink?
You can take a look at the console in Browser. (F12) It will give some info. Also a good option is to select "Strict" mode flag while exporting your scene.

WOAH! That's going to be awesome

Hey that's great, it seems you have quite an informative debug error log! It specifically reported it was missing uv map layer. Fixed it.

Thanks
