Short description of error
Importing an FBX with embedded textures doesn't initialize textures correctly and has the texture source pointing the the incorrect place.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. While in material display mode import the attached FBX
  2. Note that the model is purple
  3. Select the model in the hierarchy, note that the texture now displays on the model
  4. Note that the texture "Source" is not pointing to an ".fbm" directory"
  5. Just to further demonstrate the issue, export the model as an fbx and re-import it. You'll find that the texture is missing.

Thanks for the report, but no bug here. Blender FBX importer never creates (unpacks) images from FBX file to disk, it just packs them into the Image datablock in .blend file. So if you want them on your filesystem, you need to Unpack them.
