render problem with Sofia.hda rig character asset


Recommended Posts

I keep getting these errors when I attempt to render Sofia.hda using apprentice 18.5.532

this hda is downloaded from the Sidefx content library here

Sofia Rig | SideFX

[20:49:26] mantra: Unable to load texture 'opdef:/Object/sofia::1.0?Sofia_low5_Sofia_clothes_Glossiness.tga'

in scene viewport I see skin texture but in mantra skin is grey

the clothing textures seem to be working

the sofia.hda node will not unlock when I right click on allow editing

how do I resolve this?

then edit the basecolor texture to
