Soft Goods Tool not applying new Renderworks Texture

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have used the Soft Goods tool to make curtains. I want to change the color of the curtains from standard black to a pearlescent fabric texture that I have created as new Rendtrworks texture. No matter what I do, the curtains will not take the texture and remain black. I have tried everything I can think of in the OIP, Attributes and Class. What should I do?

Thanks!

Could you please post the soft good and texture in an example file and post it? I can take a closer look.

Ahh, I forgot Soft Goods work oddly:

Select the Soft Good, then in the Shape tab of the Object Info palette, click "3D Curtain Options", then, from the menu on the top, select Custom. Under Custom you should then be able to pick the texture you want.

If you're running 2017 (or a recent version of the Landru Design version, SoftGoofds 2),  click on the "3D Curtain Options" button in the OIP.  Choose the "Custom" option.  You'll them be able to choose Textures from either your current file or from VW files found in "...\Libraries\Defaults\Soft Goods - Custom Textures."

I hope that helps.
