Materials has dissapeared fro raylectron

Post by stevo1 »

Hi I used raylectron to try do do a render as I have not used it in a few months. I used to have a list of standard materials (convert this material) I onll get fur/grass or emitter/portal, non of the list I used to get like metal plastic shiny etc. Have I forgotten how to use it or has something gone wrong?

It looks like it's not looking in the proper folder or that it has moved. When you click on the yellow folder icon next to "Convert this material", does it open the right one? It should be in your "Documents\Raylectron\Favorite Materials".

It doesn't really matter where as long as all the file are in it. Is it empty?

Have you installed it using the EXE once before when you had all the materials and then installed the update using the RBZ from within Sketchup instead?

If you just download the full installation EXE, not the RBZ, it will reinstall the material folder. Uninstall the one you already have first so there isn't 2 copied in 2 different place. Have you done a search on your C: to find that folder so that you don't lose the materials you created?

That's just it, the materials listed in the drop down comes from the default materials upon installing Raylectron, in the folder of the icon next to the drop down.
