Working with Materials
Materials are used to apply some color to an object or to map a texture onto its surface. Materials also determine how an object reflects and dissipates the light.
The program includes a material library which is located in the Library panel. You can add new materials to the library.
The Object Materials tab of the Inspector is used to work with materials already applied to objects.
You can export customized materials as a backup archive. This backup can be imported later in order to be added to the library. This is useful when you need to restore your library after re-installing the program, or if you wish to transfer the library on a second computer.
