Hey guys I'm probably doing something really silly, but I've been trying to generate a mesh with multiple materials through script. Everything else works great, but I ran into some strange behavior with MeshRenderer.materials
Basically if I set the material (singular) property to an existing material everything works fine, but if I try to set it through materials it gets ignored and I'm not sure why.
GameObject gameObj = World.Instance.GetObject(); Material mat = World.Instance.GetMaterial(); MeshRenderer meshRenderer = gameObj.GetComponent<MeshRenderer>(); // Works fine //meshRenderer.material = mat; // Does nothing meshRenderer.materials = new Material; meshRenderer.materials = mat; // However this gives me the color component of my material meshRenderer.materials.CopyPropertiesFromMaterial(mat);
Also if someone knows how the four material properties relate to each other, material, materials, sharedMaterial and sharedMaterials I'd love to know. For example if I wanted 1 shared material and 2 instanced materials how would I set that up?
Also I just realized I never actually tried it with more than one material, I don't know if that would make a difference.
