Material importing

I am trying to find out how to get some materials I downloaded to work in Blender2.5. I went to this site http://matrep.parastudios.de/index.php and downloaded a material I like. Now I can’t figure out how to apply the material to the object I made. The material is downloaded in a .blend format. Can anyone help? Thanks :slight_smile:

Use Shift+F1 to append the material data block from the blend you downloaded into the blend you are working with and then apply it in the material settings from the list of materials.
