Greetings Voyage_gui,

Have you tried to follow the instructions from this page: http://paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView:Texture :confused:

Best regards,

Hi wyldckat,

Thanks for the link.

I can't find from File tab any Load texture (version 3.98.0 64bit on Windows 8).

I have tried to open my image "capture.png" then create a surface called "Surface_texture" then apply a filter callef texture to surface and select texture coordinates. But it doesn't seem to work.

Hi Guillaume,

Try to set things up as shown in the attached image. Notice the "Load" option next to the "Texture" line.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi wyldckat,

thanks a lot for the info.

Unfortunately you don't have the same interface (cf image) and i can't find Load near Texture.
I have just updated to version 4.0 RC1 and still have same interface as i had before.

Hi Guillaume,

Sorry, I was (still am :() in a hurry and only managed to post the image.

A few directions:
  1. See the "Properties" tab on the middle lower half?
  2. See "Search..." edit box a bit below the "Properties" tab-button?
  3. There's a button to the right with a "gear" icon. Click on it and more options will appear.
  4. Then scroll down to the end of the list below the "Search" edit box and hopefully you'll see what I showed you before.
Best regards,
Bruno
