About the scenario

In this scenario, the main following steps are executed:

About Material options

The scenario maintains visual aspect (diffuse color).

By default (option "Generate Diffuse Map" = No), the resulting phantom mesh has no material applied in its Material Property (Part or Occurence): a sub-material is applied on each patch of the mesh (or sub-mesh).
Basically the result is: 1 mesh + materials on patches.

Selecting "Generate Diffuse Map" option automatically calculates a diffuse texture map out of the color aspect of the original parts (baking based on UVs automatically generated).
A material, using the generated diffuse map, is automatically applied to the resulting phantom mesh in its Part "Material" property.
Basically, the result is: 1 mesh + [1 material + 1 diffuse map].
