Texture Previews

Question

Every texture I  try to edit does this whether it originated as an image or color. See the third and last image

It did this to me all last year (VW 2020) as well. Unfortunately I was not very busy for most of the year. VW 2021 is doing the same thing.

Through the images watch the previews of Wood Decking Red tint.

Thanks

On the Edit Texture pane, on the right side under ‘Preview Options’ if you change the Obj Type to anything besides ‘Plane’ does it change the preview?

Yes I am wondering the same, if it render with different object type choices.

 

Does Renderworks fail for you in other cases besides this one with the Edit Texture dialog?

This happens for me every time I edit or create a texture while inside Symbol Edit mode. This bug started in 2020 and persists in 2021.

Hello Andy:

The symbol edit detail is important to know.  Can you attach a specific file with a symbol you are editing to the bug?  Thanks for the testing!!

No problem - I'll attach a file to the bug report on JIRA, but note that it happens in every single file, when in any symbol, working with any texture. It's never not happened, since mid 2020.

Update - apparently it somehow has to do with the coordinates of the symbol that you're currently editing. If the symbol is at the origin then the bug doesn't happen. As the symbol moves further away from the origin the texture preview object moves off to the side... and symbols far away from the origin fully exhibit the bug.

 

If you edit the Symbol via the RM then the bug doesn't happen, only if you're editing a Symbol in the document.

 

Attaching a screen recording to JIRA as well.

That would be a no on that with the object choices.

I work almost exclusively in Open GL but the textures did all appear correctly on the design and sheet layers

Glad it helped.  I wish I could explain why it happens and why my solution works...
