Eevee material preview doesnt read well
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

Hello everybody!! Thank you for blender 2.80. It's really a good job.
Please help me with this :

System information
Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit
Graphics card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

Blender Version
Broken: blender2.8

**When I want to apply a material, what is shown on the screen of the preview doesn't allow me to distinguish the features of my mesh. In fact, both the mesh and the preview's background are totally white unlike blender 2.79's.
Please help me. I really like this blender's version

Go to the material's menu. Choose a material and go see the preview

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) triaged this task as Normal priority.

This is only true for the material preview in Eevee, right?
(Eevee misses the checkered background and in general preview is not updated to work with eevee nicely)

Note there is also discussion in T57683 about this...

@Clément Foucault (fclem), @William Reynish (billreynish) : not sure what the status of this is (T57683)?
Any other plans to have Eevee material previews read a little better?
(also not sure if this is considered a bug -- but would be nice to solve before release...)
(putting this on Normal priority for the time being...)

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) renamed this task from Problem with the mesh's material in blender 2.80 to Eevee material preview doesnt read well.Feb 12 2019, 9:52 AM

That's why I made the new material preview. We can include it as far as I'm concerned, but it needs review by @Clément Foucault (fclem) and @Brecht Van Lommel (brecht).

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) claimed this task.

We don't need to keep a report open for this, just use T57683.
