I have always just used jpgs and png for textures in SketchUp and I recently found out that SketchUp supports PSD file as well. After some tests and studying, I found out that it is just converting to a rater (jpg) and losing original PSD’s layers and effects.
This is not a problem as I understand that bringing and maintaining PSD file as texture can be very tricky business. This is why I thought SketchUp doesn’t support PSD the first place.
However, I am slightly confused as some PSD will be applied correctly and some will not show included image at all. Resulting just white on SketchUp material editor.
I attach two PSD files - Test 01.psd and Test 02.psd
Test 01 works as expected whilst Test 02 doesn’t.
Can anyone tell me if this is a bug, or if expected behavior; tell me what are the necessary requirement for PSD file to work in SketchUp?
