  2. How To Fix Missing Textures With Light Kit Pro Leave a Comment

    In this quick video, I answer a question we have been getting in customer support for Light Kit Pro lately. Many have you have been asking about how to fix missing textures in older scene files where you have used Light Kit Pro. We made a script to fix exactly that and it came with your latest version of Light Kit Pro.

    Check your Light Kit Pro install folder to find the script and use it any time you see a missing texture error for older Light Kit Pro scene files. The script is included in version 2.0 and up. Keep Rendering!
