This was done properly by someone last month who can't seem to help me now.  

I saved THEIR file as a new file to make my changes.  Now I'm trying to render and the IMAGE i have properly attached for panels in a "stained" glass curtain wall panel is rendering as GRAY, but with the correct pattern.  I have spent the morning and still cannot figure this out.

Sorry, it is not an incorrect render, it is an incorrect setting.

First, you say render but is it render or realistic or shaded?  Patterns don't show on renders, they use a jpg image not a pattern file.

I assume you mean other than render so many possible problems - here are some:

  • You have the wrong material assigned
  • The material color is not set correctly in the material properties GRAPHICS TAB not the appearance tab
  • The element may be in a different phase

I am RENDERING the 3d view.  I have an image set in "appearance" an there's a gray color set that there I can get rid of.  It overrides the color of the "stained" glass image.

EVERYTHING is set to "NEW CONSTRUCTION" (but why should it matter?  A rendering is a rendering)

When I change the GRAY color to BLUE, certain panels then change to BLUE, with the pattern.

There are typically two kinds of render materials.  One that is just the image and the other that allows you to set the color, typically a uniform colored material.  Glass and Gypsum Board are two materials that you can set the color on.

 

You say a 'stained glass' material.  Stained glass is a hard material to do.  Typically, it is small segments of glass in different colors.  You can't really assign an image to a full window unless the image is created to fill the window and even then, there are problems.

 

You would be better off to use a decal.   This thread may help you to understand.

What you want / was done/ was not done with a material.  This was either a decal or was added with photoshop.

Read again the post I linked.  It suggested one full pain of glass for the entire window to host the decal.  A decal has to be fully hosted and you don't want to mess with 14 decals, just one.   The muttons can be modeled in place or a CW in the same place with empty panels.

Here is a tutorial on how to use a material image .... NOTE - The image has to be equal to or larger than your window glass because you don't want tiling.
