getting just a material from blender.

ok ok i know i posted this before, but i think it was in the wrong section:( so here it is again

is it possible to export just a material to a new file? something that i could load in another program, like maya? or do i just need to make it a special file thing? thanks for the help ~ mitchel0

you cvould export the whole object with the material then delete the object ang=d keep the material…

Not all a materials settings, if anything possibly other than really the colour, and read by another program, especially not one that hasn’t been tightly integrated into the blender system. You could UV unwrap your objects and just bake the materials to a texture which can then be imported and applied in a 3rd party program.

ok thank you guys, how do i do what you said Richard?

Good idea, Richard!
