snapeslayer why cant i see my reference?
I can't tell what the problem is without looking at it. Here are a couple things you can try that might help.
-Make sure the image is locked in an ortho view
. (by pressing num1, num7, or num3
, and then pressing num5
) [I talk about locking into views at 5:15
of the indepth vid]
-Make sure the background image checkbox is on
, the opacity is at 50%-100%
, and the file you choose is an image file. (image may need to be scaled) [I go over reference images at 7:40
-Where it says axis
under the background image drop dialogue
, check to see if it is on "all views"
, if not change it.
-If you are in a render view, you must go to the render tab
in the properties panel
(camera icon on the top right), go down to film
, and check the [transparent] box
Make sure you have the latest version. The default settings should be all the same since I used a blender from download. If none if this works, or if you still have questions, send me a message.
