At the moment I try to program my own kind of material derived from materialdata ( yes I thought about cinema materials, and I definitely need to do my own ones ). As a very first step I try to do a simple texture mapping...at least I hope that this will be simple ;) I do my first steps to do so within CalcSurface. Take the volumedata->p point and calculate a specific color for it...nice so far. But at that point some questions occure.
- The texture tags provide several settings for texture mapping. These settings take influence on the matrix I get with GetMl, right? So this one should give me the mapping information....but I need that information in the CalcSurface method to include that information in my mapping calculation....how do I get the tag data there?
- If I attach my material to a plane for example, I get a nice result when rendering the scene. But in the preview my plane is just black. When I use the cinema material with a texture, then the texture is even visible in preview.....how do I get that with my own material?
