Title: Materials Changing??
Post by: Robb63 on September 15, 2010, 12:00:07 pm
I've just reopened a couple of files that I was working on just a few minutes ago and the materials that were assigned in the rendering have all changed.
Nothing has changed in my computer, it is the same session I am working in.

HELP!! I need these scenes for some final packaging and can't have this happening

This is very strange - did you merge bips by any chance?

I think may have merged bips on the original file, but then the next couple of files opened and did the same thing.
Is there any trick for merging bips? Seems like this might have happened before. One of the awesome things about KS is that I can merge bips since I am rendering a lot of packaging/brochure models where I have to swap out parts all of the time.

We are making the change in 2.1 so that materials are no longer linked when you import bips. This is a very annoying thing right now.
