The Material Editor allows to manage the materials of the scene. It is accessible from the Materials Menu or by pushing on the "Materials" button in the Main Toolbar.



Add Button

Creates a new material. The user gets to choose the type of material (shader) he wants to create: standard, color, PBR or unlittexture.

Remove Button

Removes the currently selected material from the scene. All objects in the scene that used the removed material will appear gray in the viewport, meaning they will not have any material applied (and will be exported without material).

Materials List

Lists all the materials available in the scene. By default, the Materials List displays no material. When importing a new 3D file, all materials contained in the imported file are added to the Materials List.

Search Bar

Can be used to filter the Materials List to the materials containing the typed text string only in their name.

Materials Settings

Displays all the materials settings for the currently selected material in the Material Lister. Material settings must be adjusted from here.

Save material button

Save material button needs to be pushed after changing selected material settings. If not pushed, a "Material has changed" warning will be displayed asking the user to keep changes or not.

Create basic set of colors button

Edit Patterns button

Foe a selected material, the Edit Patterns button opens a new menu, allowing the user to modify material/shader type (standard, color, PBR or unlittexture), or create its own.
