Hi,

There's no need to modify materials linked to these items under Custom Object(s) - Material. If there isn't any material assigned under Forest's Geometry > Material, the Forest object obtains the material directly from the Custom Object(s). You might find this way more flexible.

I hope that helps.

Best regards,

frodo

That is what I meant, reassigning material directly on custom objects.

Hi again, I'm back after a while.
This issue really slowing me down can someone check it?

Example.
1) Forest object with 30 obejects.
2) Each object have its own material, no material overrides inside forest object.
3) Each material is quite complex, blend, multisub, etc. 20+ SME nodes each.
4) I have to change all the materials on object from this forest object. Word change is important because I reaasigning each material and not modifying current one.
5) This reassigment takes ages. 20+ minutes
