Learn how to organize multiple material graphs in separate tabs.
- [Instructor] The main graph area here in Slate…is called a view,…and something that's in the view…is not necessarily in the scene.…It's not necessarily assigned to an object.…It's just a staging area for creating materials.…And if you wish, you can have more than one stage.…If you right click on the View1 tab,…you'll get a popup menu,…and from there you can do things like rename the view…or delete it.…You can also create a new one.…And you can also create by right clicking…on an empty slot here.…
Create new view.…And you can give it a name.…I'll just accept the default of View2.…And now we've got another tab…and we can choose them here.…We can also choose them up here if you we want,…but that's kind of unnecessary…because we can just click on the tab.…If I go over to View2,…I can now start dragging things in.…I think I'll drag over another physical material,…double click it to load it into the parameters,…and choose a preset.…Let's do rough concrete…and call it concrete physical.…
And let's load another preview.…Right click on the node for the material…
