Material Tab Disappears When I Import A Mesh


(bentraje) #1

Material tab somehow disappears once I imported my model
I tried both the Cycles and Blender Engine.

The only culprit I can think of is overlapping UVs. But I kinda need the overlapping UVs.

Is there a way around this? Thank you

Hard to tell from a cropped image but it looks as though you do not have your object selected. Some objects do not show a material tab such as the lamps and camera and such. Make sure you have your object in the scene you are wanting a material for selected and see if that is it. Or take a screen shot that is not cropped to one portion of the screen.

You are right mate. Sorry for the trouble.
Totally forgot that the panels are context sensitive.

No worries. Glad you got it figured out :slight_smile: Blender does take a bit to get used to but once you do then it is off to the races from then on.
