Blender materials not transforing

  • Hey Quint,

    Did you follow the Blender 3D Object Export guide by chance before attempting to import?

  • Hey @...

    There are two "gotchas" not mentioned in the Blender 3D Object Export guide that are easy to miss. I was caught by these and have been trying to figure them out.. but finally got it working. :-)

    1. Make sure your exported object from Blender is using a PBR (Principled BSDF) shader. The FBX format will only export PBR shaders.

    2. When you export from Blender, make sure "Copy" is selected in the Path Mode dropdown, and that you have enabled the Embed Textures toggle next to the Path Mode drop down. Textures will not export at all without this being enabled - and it's very easy to miss!

    @... perhaps you should consider including this extra info in the Blender export guide?
