When starting a new model i set a new maya project and usually use a folder like ..\images for the textures. Problem is that this path is exported to the .i3d file.
I tried to change the path in my project, have put the texture files in the root of the project, but it did not work.
Probably i missed something, please tell me what i do wrong.

Hi Ruprecht,

There is a logic in the exporter that detects relative paths during export but that only works if a texture file is located in the same or a subdirectory of the Mayafile.

Hi Christian,

thanks for the tip, that explains it did not work for me. I usually set up my Maya projects with folders "Scenes" and "images", but not as subdirectory...
I'll test it next export.

I have tried to export with Lambert, same problem
