Create material Action.[SOLVED]
« on: February 08, 2017, 05:29:11 AM »
Good day. Can someone please make an action that creates standard unity 5 material?
I found some code here http://answers.unity3d.com/questions/21457/is-it-possible-to-create-a-material-asset-from-a-s.html

But I don't really know how to use it.

:)

 I am glad you could solve this, also, I would expand on this and expose the shader name as a public FsmString so that the action can createa new material with any shaders.

 Bye,

Hello.
can i have more infos about the usage of this piece of code ?
it doesn't seem to create any new material inside the project folders.
do i use it properly ?
what am i supposed to put inside the "add material" variable of the action ?
am i supposed to tell the action which material i would like to make a COPY of ?

please help

Hi,

Ok, this action isn't really working as is, I have created one on the Ecosystem.



and basically, you need to fill the shader you want, to get the list, simply try to create a material manually and check what's available in the list of shaders.

 Bye,

 Jean

thanks a lot jean.
it seems to do what i wanted.

For noobs like me : take note that the material(or shader actually) that is created during runtime don't appears in the hierarchy of the project.
But if you store this new material in a variable and set it on an object it will actually work and you can modify the color of it individually, independantly from any other instance of the same object.
