Using 3 channels texture format,. samplers are not allowed?

Hey guys,

wrote an effect and I am trying to use a saved frame into the shader. It Works, but I constantly get this error message and the node gets red and unstable.

This is the error message in TTY:
Using 3 channels texture format, samplers are not allowed in this case, use load only.

I tried googling and searching, but found no fix or documentation.

My workflow: I saved a texture with the writer node to a .png (.bmp for debugging, same problem) and then load it with fileTexture and feed it into the shader.

I am new to shaders so I try to load the texture with the typical boilerplate code:

texture Italy <string uiname=“Italy”;>;
sampler Samp3 = sampler_state //sampler for doing the texture-lookup
Texture = (Italy); //apply a texture to the sampler
MipFilter = LINEAR; //sampler states
MinFilter = LINEAR;
MagFilter = LINEAR;
} ;

what am I missing?

can you show us the line where the Samp3 get’s used? you seem to have some mix up with data types there.
