Custom Textures in VEO (workaround)

From Stuff and BIMs:
"So an issue many people have with VEO when starting out is that any sort of photo realistic materials can't be modified in terms of selecting new images.

As a result the non-rendered images when we are trying to achieve things like Blockwork or CMU aren't achievable at this point in time.
All you need to do is get any image you wish and rename to the identical name of the image you are replacing.


When you open VEO and reload the project you should see the updated image on any objects assigned with that material. "

Updated VEO™ release - version 1.6.2

From the release notes page:

  • Look for tooltip messages by hovering over UI elements. They will often provide more details and context.
  • Avoid changes to Project Structure (grouping and nesting projects together) until you are fully synced.
  • Simultaneous collaboration is smoother and less prone to conflicting changes when users work in parallel but on non-overlapping content.

VEO 1.6.2 Release Notes
VEO Viewer Improvements
  • Graphics settings are now persisted locally after an upgrade
  • Workspace settings are now persisted locally after an upgrade
