OK I’ve run into this before a few time and the usual way it’s fixed is to go back into Max 8 and select the parts that are causing the problem and click on polygons and select all and then flip them and re import the model back into Unity 3D. But this time it’s not working!!
Here you can see in the “Preview pane” (Lower right hand corner) that the model looks fine but in the scene view (Upper Left Hand corner) you can see that the “Normals” are “Flipped” not only are they flipped but they are catching the light wrong too!! WTF, this must be another fine Unity bug in the latest version.
I’ve tried reimporting the model several different ways even just dragging in the native Max 8 file and nothing seems to be fixing this rather annoying problem. I tried flipping the normals on the head in Max 8 and re Unwrap UVW mapping the head again to no avail?? I’ve been at this all day trying to figure it out.
Does anyone know why this is happening and have a fix? I’m using the latest indie version of unity 3D & Max 8 with the latest FBX exporter.
