Material surface

My surface Granulated Pine Wood material has lost its quality, I have already searched for configuration in the element's attributes to configure the resolution, but I cannot recover the original resolution of the material.

They are stored in your loaded libraries.

They can be in a linked library, so you just need to find and load that library.

Or it could be in the Embedded library, but then they will only be available to that file.

 

So if it worked in a previous file, open that file and see if you are loading the correct (same) libraries in this newer file.

Or if the texture file is in the Embedded library of the older file, you can export it out and then load it into the newer file.

Is it just because the texture image file is missing from the surface material settings?

How do I recover the image?
