Getting Group Texture in Worksheet

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi

 

does anyone know how to grab the texture of a group an display it in a worksheet? I can get the texture of objects with using "Function" and "Object Texture", but even though the group is covered by a texture I can't work out how to display it in a worksheet!

 

I have thought of using a Marionette, to put the texture name in a record and then reference that, but you can't seem to get a texture name from a Marionette either!

Can you provide me with an example group?

It's possible to extract the texture from objects within a group using Marionette, and testing with a group containing one object I'm getting decent results, but the issue will be if you have multiple objects within the group that have different textures.

I am unable to pull the texture of the group directly which leads me to believe it may not be possible.

I've attached a couple of example groups, that i was trying to grab the texture of, I'm happy to texture the whole thing if that helps!
