MDL Appearance Issue (Solidworks Visualize 2020)

I am using MDL files in Solidworks Visualize and I’m having issues with the appearances of the files.
I dragged the MDL file from File Explorer into the part and this is what I get (please see images below).
Is there a way to fix this?

Alright, I figured it out!
I thought there was something wrong with the installation of the vMaterials, but I actually just needed to set up the Texture Mapping Mode to “Spherical” within Solidworks Visualize.

Great that you figured it out. vMaterials require proper texture coordinates on the objects. If there is ‘trearing’ of the uvs this will result in the artifacts that you have encountered
