Win10 x64 and Linux Mint 18.3
Broken: 2.79a and all current master builds. Probably all versions of Blender.
Short description of error
I have a simple object with a texture on it. The object itself doesn't have UVs as I use a "Texture Coordinate" node set to "Object" to generate the UV vector. The object that I reference is a simple empty.
All works as expected. But if I link these 2 objects as a group and translate the group, the texture doesn't move accordingly. Just like the empty's position wasn't updated although it's in the group that gets moved.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Download the 2 blend files (one contains the group to link, the other is just a simple master scene to link the group and render it) and put them both in the same directory.
- Open "Master_Scene_v01.blend" and press SHIFT+Z to set the viewport to "Rendered" mode. A simple black plane with the word "Text" appears.
- Now grab the "Textured_Plane" object and move it. The texture stays where it is and doesn't move with the plane.
I already tried different kinds of parenting but to no avail.
