Boolean modifier & UV mapping - HUGE help needed :-(

Hi all !

Well, i'm on a tight deadline and I'm stresssing out big time :(

In my current project I use a boolean modifier to hide some parts of a building.
When animated, it looks like the walls are being built.
Something like that : http://youtu.be/gSKQmBMUUz8

BUT as opposed to this video, my current project requires me to apply textures on tha walls.

==> Problem is : i have to check "APPLY MODIFIERS" in the Octane Render plug-in, so that the walls get hidden in every frame.
But this process (applying the modifier) gets rid of the UV-map, so I can't get any map on my model !!!
:o

Would you have some kind of tip to help me out here? I've attached some clear explanations below.
I just spent hours on the internet looking for an answer, and still nothing...

Many thanks in advance ;)

Hi Madcoo,

It looks like this is a problem with blender.
I haven't tried the latest version (daily SVN build or otherwise) so i can't confirm but see here: http://projects.blender.org/tracker/?fu ... group_id=9

Cheers
Chris.

This should be fied in blender 2.64 RC2:

http://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.64/

Release date of 2.64 is next thursday.

Please work with a copy of your file because of the new mesh system (bmesh).

Cheers, mib.

Many thanks for your quick reply.

This is really bad.
Sure, Blender is free and it's great for such a software to be free.

But that kind of problem is gonna make me move to 3DS Max some day - well, when I get 4.000€ somehow !!!

Thanks again !

Hi Mib!
Sorry, I got your reply only after posting my own reply :?

I'm gonna try this new Blender version, even though it's a RC.
Many many thanks for this link.

@ Mib2berlin => OH MAN YOU JUST SAVED MY LIFE !!!!!!!

Everything works fine with this RC version, thank you soooo much !
I can now peacefully go to bed while my 475-frame animation is cooking, and when I get up I can send it to my client.

Many many thanks for this...
