Thanks very much for this Pat. I have a world light in my patch. One 
strange thing I noticed if my model is foo.obj and my material file is 
foo.mtl I get a message in the PD console saying it can't find obj.mtl  
. I thought the mtl file was to be named modelName"+.mtl ie. foo.mtl  . 
I renamed my mtl file obj.mtl and it was found ie. no error message but 
the texture still doesn't appear on the model? It is white. Any other
