batch apply texture

I’m making a scene in which a planet explodes, and I made a planet out of little chunks, by cutting up a sphere. However, I stupidly neglected to apply a texture before breaking up the sphere, and now I have a ton of little untextured peices. I really don’t want to apply the texture by hand, but there doesn’t seme to be a “material” setting in the copy menu. Am I missing something, other than the value of planning ahead?

Use Ctrl+L to Link material:

  1. Select all your little pieces to be textured/materialed
  2. hold down shift and select an object with the material already applied
  3. Ctrl+L
