Managing Materials

Once you selected a mesh, or applied a material to the selected mesh, you can modify it using the edition tools. Example with the PBR Material:

EditPBRMaterial

The same kinds of edition tools are available for each material type, such as Water, Lava, Terrain etc.

You are now able to modify the material's parameters using the edition tool. To edit the texture parameters, you can:

  • Choose a texture from the list "Choose"
  • Browse texture using the texture editor (see "Managing Textures")

If you use the Texture Editor, once you select a texture in the textures list, the selected texture will be applied.

Each texture type has its own color:

You can also preview the render target textures, including shadows maps (example with a custom render target texture):
