Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Using bitmaps as texture, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…There are many times when you'll need to use a bitmap as a texture in…Maya, so let me show you how to apply a simple file as a bitmap.…I'm going to start off with a Nurbs plane.…Now the reason I'm using Nurbs for these is because…they actually texture map a little bit easier than polygonal surfaces.…And so that makes it just a little bit easier for use to see how these work.…So I'm actually going to make a Nurb surface…that's a little bit wider than it is tall.…And then we're going to apply a material to this.…
I'm going to go into my rendering shelf here, and…let's just go ahead and apply a blend material.…And our attribute editor should show up.…Select blend.…And then under color, we're going to go…ahead and hit this checkerboard to the right.…That brings up create render node.…Now in this case, we're going to select file.…I'm going to click on that, the file node comes up.…So we have one here for file, as well as place 2-D texture.…I'm going to stay on file.…
And go down till I see File Attributes and Image Name.…
