Import obj and mtl

8 posts in this topic

Hi! This is my first post, so thanks for letting me in. Ok, so I've just recently discovered a interest in the 3d world and Im trying to grasp the basics. I'm struggling with a problem that I cant seem to find an answer to on google, youtube ect. I would like to import a model that I downloaded but when I do that (import obj, check import mtl and check texture coords) it appears in c4d very low poly. It comes with a bunch of .tga files named (filename)_D, _M, _N and _S. If I understand this right these files are maps. Like the _N file is probably a normal map. However, if I insert this file in the material under 'normal' it does nothing. I have not figured out what the other files is. Any help here would be really great. Thanks!

Uploading that here would be helpful for us, its hard to tell like this. You probably need phone tag for smoother look of your model.

Thank you for replying!

This is the model I'm trying to get to look good:

Is that sufficient info, or should I take pics or something?

Not sure what is the problem on your side, but as you can see, applying Color Texture (_D) and Normal Map (_N) gives you nice result in the viewport, you just need to make sure you go to Material Manager, under EDITOR and set 'Texture Preview Size' to something more appealing like 2048x2048. :)

Thank you kindly! That looks great. I got some results by cranking up the texture preview size, but it´s still very egdy as you can see. Any suggestions on how to fix that?

is there a phong tag? I find that I have to add one to imported models to smooth them out usually.
