Question

Is it possible to add more material palettes to the material editor once all 24 slots are used up?

 

Answer

The 24 slots that are available are intended to be used as areas to edit your materials. Once you are happy with the material and you have applied it to your geometry, you can then save the material to your material library, and clear the slot to then modify another material. To create and save to a library, open up the Material//Map browser from the rendering pulldown menu, (choose browse from material library) and then save as to a different name. This process is then repeated until you have all the materials you require.

    Alternatively use the Slate Material Editor. Which has no limits on the number of Materials being edited.

    Also it is far easier to work on an diagnose issues with materials that have nested textures or Multi Sub Object Materials assigned to complex geometry.
