hokay, done a few checks at Paradox' suggestion, no errors in Python.0.elf and, what's more interesting, is I've had a look in Vaultshop, and I see no evidence of the Images going to the vault. So, something is wrong here, and I have not the foggiest what, exactly.

Does the imager show up in the open KI?

Thanks for the response D'Lanor, myself and 'Dox worked through it today, there were some bugs in the plugin, hence why it wasn't working. =)

It all works now, though =)

Cool 8-)

btw, I can confirm that Blender's procedural noise texture refuses to export as a normal material. So it should be fine to abuse it for this purpose.

Probably the reason why is this code in the mat classes:

Code: Select all
for mtex in mtex_list:
                if(mtex != None):
                    if (mtex.tex.type == Blender.Texture.Types.BLEND or
                        mtex.tex.type == Blender.Texture.Types.NONE or
                        mtex.tex.type == Blender.Texture.Types.IMAGE or
                        mtex.tex.type == Blender.Texture.Types.NOISE or
                        mtex.tex.type == Blender.Texture.Types.ENVMAP):


Previous to the DynamicTexMaps, NOISE was not included in that list, so the plugin never touched it. The plugin will only process a layer with texture type that is included in that list. Otherwise it just spits out a null layer.

The reason I specifically chose NOISE while Paradox chose MAGIC is that i needed a dynamic text map for an imager as well. Since the imager has two planes, one with an animated noise texture, and the other with the DynamicTextMap i naturally thought "hmm NOISE would work".

I felt MAGIC best described what I was trying to do, and how it was supposed to work when I originally wrote the code :P

You lot DO dabble in the black arts, as far as some of us are concerned. ;)
