Textures on xpresso objects

Recommended Posts

Hello all, any help appreciated,

have a project with sqaure textured pillars, each pillar has 2 expresso sliders, one to operate position, the other to effect its height, 

the texture most stay the same height and NOT compress when you change the objects height, have done that by placing the textures on a null as a parent of the pillar,

so thats all working... however when i change the position the texture does not stick with it... as its flat projection.....

is there a way to achieve both?

If we cheat then yes, but otherwise no I think, or at least not with your current material setup.

 

I would get the pillar in a boole with a tall cube as Operand B (subtraction), and instead of your scale slider controlling the Y scale of the pillar, make it control the Y position of the subtracting cube instead. This will do effectively the same thing as your original plan, and allow you to move it all about with the texture going with it.

Problem is caused by user ;-) , and it´s called "naming" (itself it´s not a problem, it´s just "source" of following problems :-) )

The one of main rules (especially with some xpresso/code setups) is creating unique name for every object.

When you look in your scene, you have three different object with the same name. Polyobject driven by part of xpresso has not assigned materials, so that´s the reason why when you moved with polyobject textures don´t change position with polyobject, so need to be driven other object.
