  • Cannot change shader for exported trees

    When exporting custom v7 trees from the v7 modeler, I cannot access the shaders in Unity. I have custom shaders I would like to use. The models I purchased work fine but those from the modeler, even ones that are variations of the purchased trees do not allow me to access the materials but are grayed out.

    I hope this is just some problem and not a thing with trees exported. Anyone find a solution to this problem?

    Unity changed how materials are handled a little. When you import a new tree now, the materials are contained inside the prefab. Select the tree, go to the material tab in the inspector, and click extract materials. Then you can edit them.

      Thanks, Greg!
      I actually figured that out a wee bit ago. It works, but is a little unstable. The tree seems to sometimes lose its materials. A Unity problem, of course. I appreciate the quick response.
