Rendering with a Texture

You can render using a texture that you have stored in a file.
For information about creating texture files, see Creating a Full-Tile Repeat .
To Render Using a Texture:
  1. Go to the Render page by clicking its button .
  2. Select the object or group to render.
    You can use the [Select Object] box or you can click the object in the image. Click once to select the group. If it has sub-groups, each additional click selects the subordinate group until you reach the object. At that point, additional clicks cycle back until you reach the group level. If you use the mouse-click method, check the Select Object box to see what's selected.
    If you want to apply a decal, select a single object (not a group).
    If you want to apply a border to part of a wall, select a sub-selection.
  3. Click the Apply New Material Button and choose Apply Texture .
  4. Navigate to your texture file, select it, and choose Open . If you have set a preference to do so , a prompt lets you set the resolution for the new texture. To bypass this prompt, hold down the Shift key when you click Open .
If the texture does not have an embedded color profile, you are prompted to assign one or to indicate that you do not want to use color management for this texture.
