With some materials, when I make a change to the material, I get a flood of text saying “Bitmap table dump” and then a list of several raster images that have nothing to do with the file I’m working on. This particular file has 15 images and they are listed 2-15::Bitmap:. Some are on network drives, lots are temporary files like: 5::Bitmap:“C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp$flamingo$texture$5690a51a-ff91-4a84-adb5-8bee13f754aa.bmp”. And it repeats this dump over a dozen times (the command history only goes back that far) and takes several seconds.
Some seem to be textures and some may be viewport wallpapers used to align models for matte work.
I’ve used the ExportBitmaps command and it writes all these images to a directory. Is there a way to purge them from the file?
