Maximum number of materials?

I have created a UV sphere with with 135 faces. (Like a disco ball) I need to assign a different material to each face. Is this possible?

since you have a UV sphere, just unwrap it to a UVTexture, and use an image to color each face one of a billion colors.

Hi Papa,

I wasn’t clear with my original question. What I meant to ask was if I can texture each face separately (with a .mov clip).

In blender 2.49 there are only up to 16 separate materials per object.
In 2.5 it is practically as many as you want (thousands).


2.5 --> 32728 mat

you should have enough !
