I am looking for a way to control multiple materials from a single master variable.
I have an airport scene, which I want to render at 2 times - day and night. I want a variable that saves this time, and for materials to adjust accordingly (lamps turn on, emission shaders turn on, compositor nodes change). Currently, switching time means changing materials for dozens of objects manually, as well as changing tge hdri lighting.
What is the best way to implement this? It has to be able to control something in material nodes, such as a mix node to change shader.
