    texture mapping really dark

    whenever i use my function to load a bmp file to use as a texture map the entire display gets really dark, but when i comment out that call everything looks normal. any ideas why this would happen?

    Hi there!

    In general, if you use a texture on an object the "modulate blending§ is used.

    That means if you have a dark texture, the resulting output will be even darker.

    I hope that gives you the right direction.

    Kind regards,

    LG

    May the vector be with you!

    I've got a similar problem. When I put texture mapping on the background of my animation, I lost all my shading. All my objects are dark grey.
