I am trying to import materials from another blend file and assign the nth material to the active object. I have tried multiple solutions but I always hit errors.
- Approach 1
Here the error is: “list indices must be integers or slices, not str” (in the approach shown below):
with bpy.data.libraries.load(path) as (data_from, data_to):
data_to.materials = data_from.materials
mat = data_to.materials
for m in data_to.materials:
material1 = data_to.materials[cnt]
obj.active_material = data_to.materials[material1]
- Approach 2
When I try to assign the material by using an index instead the error is: “bpy_struct: item.attr = val: Object.active_material expected a Material type, not str” (in the approach shown below):
obj.active_material = data_to.materials[cnt]
I guess, I haven’t fully understood what data_from/data_to objects are and how to use them. Can somebody help me here?
Thanks in advance,
