Maybe I missed something.
Should I apply a picture to each face of a cube object.
Using the REPEAT and MIRROR, I can't get the result you want.

Repeating and mirroring applies only to brushes that are smaller than the surface. So, the function is there for, for example, if you want to create a brick wall and tiles ... and have as a brush only a single brick. But then you must always scale the brush to the desired size beforehand, otherwise the entire brick will always be projected onto the entire surface.

If you want to provide a cube with a brush, then you must assign at least 3 surfaces with your brush. And on the Y axis you then mirror the brush on the opposite side.

As mirror and repeating works with your cube only with 3 surfaces!

And it is important that you turn the Y Brushmap axle always to the surface! ( by scaling the Y axis )

By the way ... with UV Mapping you first have to define where and how the brush will be positioned. Even in Blender or 3dsMax, you can not easily define a 2 dimensional map on a body with 6 faces

UV Unwrapping a cube is relatively simple though :)

Mapping an image onto a cube in Imagine is also relatively simple depending on how complex the images are...

usually a texture will do the job better in imagine...

Well, all I meant was that in 3DS Max or Blender with UV Mapping you first have to set the positions of the brush with the object. The time required for this in Blender or 3Ds Max, you have also worked in Imagine his cube with the brushes. ... that's what I meant

Well, yes...

I do wish we had UV support in Imagine...
But the source is quite a mess when it comes to that part... don't know how I would add it in...

Personally, I do most of the little I do in Blender nowadays, once you get past the, to me, quirky, dynamics of the menus and texturing it's an awesome renderer and modeler with real time modeling and "scanrender" if you have a decent graphics card.

Even the "real" rendering is fast and it has built in composition and animation that makes sense
