Locate texture usage?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone...

Opened a file that gives the "error loading texture" message. The texture does not exist by that name anywhere on my machine or network. I suspect I do not need this texture, but as this will be an overnight render I really need to know for sure. I don't see anything missing anywhere in my preview, but that doesn't mean much. Is there some way to track down which materials are trying to use this missing texture? There are dozens of materials in this file so hunting for it is hopefully not the only solution. I'm hoping this is one of those (great many) dead simple things I'm just not aware of.

Thanks!

Have you found the Project Asset Inspector in R21 yet ? (Window Menu) That tells you what's using the missing one...

  • Ah that's the ticket, I knew it would be something like that.

    Some kind of "light" version of texture manager is in Attribute Manager. Switch mode to Project Info/Textures and use button Reload All Textures/Mark Missing Textures...
