Getting error with texture sample node

I was following this tutorial

But when I press T to place the sample texture, it was placed but without the texture although I was selecting this texture in the content browser. Now when I follow the tutorial the connect “multiply” to “emissive color” I get error in the texture sample saying: Error [SM5] (Node TextureSample) TextureSample> Missing input texture

Please advise

Sounds like you are missing texture. Did you have a texture selected when you pressed the “T” key in the material editor? If not then all you need to do is find the texture that you want to use and make sure to feed that into the texture sampler.

You can just drag & drop the texture from your content browser into the material editor. Much simpler imho !

Thanks for all replies

yes I had the texture selected.

It did not accept drag and drop !
