Materials Management

Guide Foyer | Guide Index | Techniques | Materials Overview

A new tiling texture material with default parameters can be created just by dropping a suitable PICT file into the active "Textures" folder. When this simple method is used, the material name will be the same as the name of the PICT file.

In addition, the "DW Material Prefs" file, can be edited by any advanced user to customize lights and textures parameters. Material definitions in the "DW Material Prefs" file take precedence over material information from any other source in DesignWorkshop.

However, DesignWorkshop does store materials information in several different places. The following chart illustrates the logic used to determine the priority of the various sources of material information.
