Setting physical material through a variable

Hi there,

Is there any way to set a physical material through a variable? I can’t promote the New Phys Material to a variable on the node and nothing else will plug into it.

Any answers or a work around are much appreciated!


I have the same problem, there seem to be no variable type for storing a reference to a physical material.
I’m on 4.7.5.

This was fixed in this change:

And will be part of 4.9, thanks for the feedback!

That’s great , thanks for letting me know .
