Materials applied + a question

Hi guys,
I have just experimented with the materials and the question that came to my mind is the following.
If i have 3 chairs using the same material, how can i change them seperately? Do I have to clone the material and change one by one?

I ended up with this:


I believe you need to create a material instance, you can do so by right clicking at the desired material and creating an instance, then you change some colors and assign the new instance to another actor or chair or whatever.

So I actually just did this, what i did was duplicated the material. Renamed it. Went into edit on the duplicate, edited the color, saved. And just switched the material on the chair i wanted to change to, to that material. It’s pretty simple :slight_smile: .

Hope this helps!
