deleting a texture

todd 4 months ago updated by Vitaly Ovchinnikov 4 months ago 2

I have an existing bottle that I need to make a render of without the label texture. I have deleted the artwork on the cap which was a decal. I can't figure out how to remove the label art so I just have a plain bottle.

Textures are assigned to materials (or sides for simplicity). For standard shapes like books or boxes sides are pre-defined. For custom shapes like lathe or loft you can manually define sides. This is done in curve editor, so if you want to get rid of extra material in the bottle structure, you need to select that part in the curve editor and re-assign a different (bottle) material to that fragment. You probably did exactly that, but anyway here is the tutorial that explains this in details: https://boxshot.com/boxshot/tutorials/advanced/lathe/
