Colours seem to show OK but texture maps don't appear in the Material Editor.
Your screenshot shows bricks.jpg, so it does appear to be showing the texturemaps in the material editor.

Hi Paul,

I think what he means is that the textures don't appear in the Material Editor Preview.

I have the same problem, material previews are rendered without textures.

Also, if I create materials in Rhino 5 and then open the file in Rhino 6 every attempt to change the material through Layer panel crashes Rhino.

I understand - thanks. This issue appears to be a Rhino6 problem, which I reported to McNeel a month ago. I have re-contacted them to see if there has been any progress resolving it.

Thanks

Hi Paul,

I found another issue related to materials. If I create an Octane material from Layers panel, import ORBX and then click OK, it doesn't save any information from the imported ORBX. I guess it's a Rhino issue though.
Also, still no fix for material previews in the latest Rhino version.

Hi Paul,

Any word back from McNeal on this issue? It's difficult to manage scenes with large material sets when you can't see what they look like in the Material Preview and have to read all of them.

Thanks,

Not yet - but I have hassled them about it again.

This was a plugin bug, which will be fixed in the next release.
