I am having no success using and environment map.
All I get is
(45) Failed to open environment "/home/pixie/shaders/map.tex"
I know the file exists. I ran make tex on the .tiff file I was trying but nothing seems to work.
Could some kind soul please give a simple example which might show me what I am doing wrong.
Not exactly the same, but you may try something from Pixie Tutorial:
Look at “Stained Glass Shadows”
A texture file is involved too, and it works for me. At least, this could be a test about texture file for you.
I used this: http://www.les-ziboux.rasama.org/download/pixie_stained_glass_shadows.tar.gz
It's a ready to use archive with the two shaders, the texture, and my render result.
Thanks very much - got it working now
