Changing the Texture Anchor Point
You can change the point on the texture that lines up with the origin on an object.
Unless you are rendering with a heavily patterned fabric texture, you should position the texture anchor point at the top-left corner of the image.
If you want to adjust the way a pattern appears on a particular piece of furniture or apparel, however, you may want to move the anchor point. For example, you might want to apply this pattern to a chair, but instead of centering the flower on the back of the chair, you may want petals at each corner of the chair back:
If you adjust the texture anchor point, make sure you are viewing the correct origin point in the drop-down list .
To Change the Texture Anchor Point:
- On the Render page, apply the texture you want to adjust to an object or group.
- Click the Material Properties tool , then click the Texture tab in the Texture Material Properties dialog box.
- Reset the texture anchor point by dragging the crosshairs in the preview or by typing new amounts in the Anchor Point boxes.
- Click OK to use the new values.
