Hi, I'm trying to generate a cubemap using six images and the nVidia Photoshop DDS PlugIn. But everytime when I tried to save it as a "cube map" an error occurs saying "error: need six images side by side and with equal height". Every file is 512x512 pixels large and I have arranged them almost every way by now. As separate images, as layers in one file and in almost every order - won't work. What am I doing wrong? I could find a help file for that plugin... thank you

I think it needs you to set up a single image with the six images in.

So the image you give to the program would be (for 6 256x256 images):

1536 pixels wide, 256 pixels high.

I'm not sure of the order, but you then need to organise the 6 images one after the other into that space.

I'm not 100% sure thats what you have to do though, bear in mind.

Thank you. :) I got it working - and after playing around with the different faces I created a template for me were I need to place the sub-images. I don't know if it depends on the rendering engine, but it worked for me.
