Soon. A fix for this will make its way into the next major 5.1 update. That said…
Or is there another quick fix solution like a free materials download package…
There’s a workaround for this annoying bug*. Rhino is looking for the German texture name in the English folder and not finding it. You need to “Choose” the texture image manually. Update: See below.
Let me illustrate the workaround (I’ll use the English material names, so translate these in your head, please):
- Open the Material Editor. Find click on the material whose texture is not working. You should see it’s properties appear in the panel below:
- I’m using “Hammered” as an example. (Rhino will find the texture map for me, because I’m using it in English.) Scroll down into the Texture section and expand it (if necessary).
- Click on the Map file: drop down and select Choose…
- A file browser window opens. I suspect this will be pointing to the
/Applications/Rhinoceros.app/Contents/PlugIns/RhinoRenderV5.rhp/Contents/Resources/en.lproj/Render Content/Textures folder…
- It’s the en.lproj that is the problem*. Rhino is trying to find the texture.png for this texture (whatever “Hammered” is in German) in the wrong language.
- If you click on
de.lproj three folders up, then drill down into
Render Content/Textures you should find “Hammered” in there. Select that file.
- You will have to do the same thing with the bump texture (if applicable). The rest of the material settings should be appropriate and correct.
This is annoying, I know. I think we should store these files in a more sane location outside the Rhinoceros application bundle, such as in
~/Library/Application Support/McNeel/Rhinoceros/Render Content/Textures, as others have suggested. BUT we also have to fix this bug. It’s on our list (@marlin).
Hopefully this solves your problem. Sorry for the weird behavior. It’s only temporary.
*the names of the textures that come with Rhino are translated into each language. The bug listed above is that the Rhino material editor is looking in the English folder for - in your case - the german file name and not finding it.
