How do I "copy" a material?

Hi- sorry if this is really basic but-

how do I copy a material, so that I can have a new version with just the base diffuse altered? My material has quite a few procedural textures to create its look and would take ages to recreate just to change the base colour for some objects. I cannot find a way of doing this- can it be done?



NVM got it :slight_smile:

Yeah, you don’t have to copy anything in Blender. Just re-link to it and make single user. Then the new user has its own copy derived from the original.
