snap camera won't show graph material with textures

  • Hi Marcela,

    It looks like your version of Snap Camera might be out of date. Try updating to the latest version and let me know if the issue persists.

  • Hi Marcela,

    Usually the issue of Pink/black happened when imported into Lens Studio, the material that gets created assumes you want a texture and haven't assigned it yet.

    1- Find the material in the resources panel and select it.
    2- Check all texture properties on the material to ensure the texture is set or the texture property is disabled.

    Please let me know if the issue persists.

  • I don't understand what you mean by checking the texture is set. I found exactly the same answer in the forum, but I don't get it.

    Here I'm uploading a screenshot of one of the materials with texture set (according to me) and the graph mapper.

  • Having the same issue. A lens I made works correctly in Lens Studio and on the app, but does not work on Snap Camera. It shows purple and black textures where there should be images. The texture is set to an image I uploaded. Snap Camera is up to date.
