Importing Materials.

I haven’t used Blender for awhile but have gotten back into it.

I am creating blood cells and downloaded a blood cell material off the internet. How do I import that material into my current model?

Use the F1 key to Append, then choose the file on your hard drive that contains the material, then choose 'Material", then choose the actual material from the available materials in the file. You should then be able to see that material as a choice when clicking the little arrow up next to the material name in the shader panel.

I hit F1 and clicked open file and it deleted my file and started a new blender?

What do you mean by Append?

crap, i should’ve said Shift- F1. Sorry

No problem. It’s an easy fix. Thanks for the help.
