Need Help - Vertex Painting Not Showing Texture

Hey Everyone,

I hope this is the right place to post this but I’m having a slight issue. Whenever I paint a mesh using the vertex painter with snow it only shows the snow and not the concrete texture ‘beneath’ the snow and only shows a black texture. I followed this tutorial and I can’t see where I’ve gone wrong (Ue4: advanced materials (Ep. 32 vertex painting snow) - YouTube).

If anyone knows why this is happening and has a solution please let me know.

Please see images attached!

Thanks for any help

I did not watch the tutorial you mentioned, but I suspect that the “subtract” node after the concrete texture is the cause of your issue.
The texture outputs a number between 0 and 1, subtracting 1 will always result in a 0 or negative number, that causes the color to be seen as black.

Try to plug your concrete texture directly to the “A” input of the lerp node, it should fix the thing :slight_smile:

Thank you very much Remy, that fixed my problem! Such a small thing. I appreciate your help :slight_smile:
