It seems like every time I need to make a new version of say, a label texture that I've changed, when I go to the material and "load" the new texture, it doesn't replace. I have to re-name the new tex

by Rick Morton 11 years ago
I'll check that. But again, it works fine... then goes to rendering only about 4 seconds. Then less. Then it starts to repeat at about 2 frames... then I get the error message.
