I watched the video and you had extruder color selected, you need speed selected.

Can you post the stl file and the graphics file that you are using? If so I can see if I can get it to work with your exact use case.

Hold on, stop for a second. I gave every single file and setting, although I'll admit it was spread over 2 posts.
First, the proven spiral vase mode source gcode is attached in this post viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10039#p34495
specifically this gcode file zipped download/file.php?id=8615
Also, download this test image, the Raise 3D logo (now zipped to ensure you can more easily download)http://forum.raise3d.com/download/file.php?id=8669
Then, I used these settings in the Velocity painting tool (notice my offsets)

That should create the exact same gcode as this result file.
download/file.php?id=8624

Last, even though we pointed it out to you, in your preview window, now in your video you have uploaded, you failed to view speed as the focus, and so it defaulted to toolhead which will not show the modifications applied by velocity painting.

So since you keep doing that, stop opening the velocity painting gcode in that viewer and instead use the online version of the gcode viewer.
You simply drag and drop the resulting gcode file over this opened webpage http://www.velocitypainting.xyz/gui/gcode.html
It works with "Recommended browsers: Firefox, Safari."

Again, I think we have mistakes on multiple levels.
#1 I've literally seen you completely forget the most important setting when trying to preview. So, we have no idea if you got the actual file creation correct or not, all we know is, you didn't preview it correctly and failed to share the resulting gcode file so we can preview it.
#2 Depending on the image, even using my source gcode, the image offset values took me a few attempts to get the image correctly centered vertically and scaled on the test object. That required me to properly preview and see where the image landed on the object, and then adjust the numbers and preview again. Since you haven't even gotten step 1 of the preview right, we have no idea if your offsets are correct. This is because you are using a different source image (I saw the texture you were using either in a video or in a screen grab, but knew it wasn't the same logo I used).

I am trying to help, but also getting frustrated that I spent time and so have others, and you are not fixing the simple mistakes over and over. I admit, this is a tough topic with a lot of offsets and values and variables, and so I get the learning curve, but if you cannot preview the code properly, it's shear luck if you get this to work and find the right offsets.

Again, if nothing else, this is a known proven good gcode for preview. Ensure you can see the Raise 3D logo in this test file.
download/file.php?id=8624

Do it either with Ideamaker as shown and ensure you change the setting in the lower right to "speed"

OR
Use the web preview function

Yes, it all my fault! Sorry about that, maybe the barrier is language, but probably I didn't check it carefully! And you waste it so much time. Sorry again and thank you very, very much!

I thought that I checked it twice. I need to make a try with my FUSION 360 files also. From files above everything works fine!

Sorry, I realize my answer may have had more bite than I intended. I just wanted to convey the importance of being able to correctly preview.

No. This kind of help is priceless in modern times.
