View Full Version : Maya doesn't like me

Hey all, quick question.
Hypershade is being weird, when I load up a texture file (TGA, jpeg etc. I've tried them all) it gives me this:
Anyone know whats going on?
Probably the texture is too large for Maya to think it should generate a thumbnail from it, so it uses a default image.
I think you can force it to update if you right-click on the material and go to "Refresh Swatch".

Thanks mop for the fast response.
The refresh worked, now it shows the thumbnail but when i assign the material to the model, i get this error "// Error: Error while parsing arguments."
that should fix it permanently.

Will that fix the error though? It is not appearing on my model... at all.
try deleting history on the object and re-assign the material

That error happens to me too sometimes. It usually goes away when restarting. Sometimes you can get around it by using an alternative method for assigning (MMB drag, RMB assign on the object or RMB assign on the material)
Anyone ever tried to pin down exactly what was causing the error? A name conflict maybe (I saw this error last week at work, it was caused by 2 objects with the same name in different Groups or something)?
It's sometimes worth popping open the script editor and looking at the last few lines, since sometimes the final warning you see in the status bar isn't the main one causing the problem.

try importing the model into an empty comp fixes almost all issues like this in maya, also this error is caused by lots of different things ive seen it before 3 times on my own stuff each time with different fixes one was because i had messed with the initial shading group, one was because the mesh had been extracted and merged a few times and the history got rediculous, and i cant remember the third. gl with the issue.
