Applying texture to a 3D model in Unity
I will explain how to apply the downloaded texture file to a 3D model using Unity.
For this tutorial, I chose to download a texture file found from the ‘Ground’ category, and apply it to a plane to create ground.
Open Unity, choose「Create」→「3D Object」→「Plane」and create a Plane.
Drag and drop the downloaded texture file into the ‘Assets’ folder in the Project view.
Drag and drop the texture file you just added to the Plane in the Scene, and apply it.
We successfully applied the texture to the Plane.
