doesn't look good on iPad

I did a quick test...


imported model

applied a few materials to different objects

changed style to basic shading

exported to local

copied to ipad


Loads fine and functions great. The problem is none of the materials are visible. Each model is a random color not displayed in Publisher.


Is this a limitation of the Trial? a bug? limitation of the iPad?


I also loaded in a background image (jpg) and that isn't seen on the iPad either.


Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I need to demo this before I can justify the purchase.

The background not coming in is a known limitation. The material should however not change on mobile output. Can you please send me the ipb file that is exhibiting this issue? You can email me at if you need a secure ftp location to upload the file.
