Materials won't save into library - HELP!?
« on: December 30, 2015, 01:00:10 pm »
For some reason, Keyshot 6 (floating) will not save materials to my library. I can click save to library and it will "put them in" while I keep the same window open, but the second quit out and restart or open a new document, even after saving, the materials disappear. I also tried to save them and while keeping the window open, check my materials folder in windows and I found that its not actually saving a material into the folder.

I found a potential work around by exporting the material first and then moving that to the materials folder. Now the material show up when I reopen keyshot, but loses all textures and maps applied to it, even if they are still in the same folder. Also the materials are showing up in a cruddy grey color when I open the file. (see attached Image)

Has anyone had this problem?

I am having a similar problem. The material saves however it doesn't show up in the next session. It isn't saving them into the Keyshot Materials folder when you search the file path on the windows browser either.

Hopefully there will be a fix for this as it is imperative that materials are the same across projects.

Does running KS as Administrator on Windows fix this? I had problems with OS X and folder permissions

There is a bug related to this affecting a few users of KeyShot 6. It has been fixed in KeyShot 6.1, which we will release shortly. You can contact [email protected] to get the beta of 6.1
