Author Topic: When I reopen a scene, the custom materials revert back to preset defaults.  (Read 3358 times)

I have a few presets where I want to change the default Vray material to a Vray 2-sided material... but when I customized the materials and save the scene... the 2 sided materials are disconnected.

I have tried both merging the forest objects into the scene as well as the xref option but either way I keep losing my changes and it is driving me nuts!

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

As mentioned in this "V-Ray Material Override" post:

It is not safe to modify directly the "automaterial", because Forest keeps references to its source materials. Instead you should modify the material linked to item(s) - Custom Object(s) - Material(s). Any changes made this way, will be projected safely to the Forest's "automaterial".

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
