I posted a thread on here a few weeks ago and asked about importing materials. I have a material from the Blender Material Repository and would like to get the material in that blend file to another blend file where I will actually use the material. I’ve Googled appending and think I understand it but am not completely sure.
I start in my project file (the file of the project that I want to use the downloaded material in) and I go to file > append or shift+F1. Then I go to the blend file I downloaded and select the material I want and click “Link/Append from Library” then nothing happens. The append menu closes and takes me back to my project. From my understanding you change an object’s material by selecting the object and going to the “material” tab of that object correct? So I do that and the default material is still there. When I append it (if I’m even doing it right) do I have to move it somewhere or do I have to do something before I can use it?
I hope I didn’t explain it in a confusing way, forgive me if I did and thanks for all responses in advance.
