Just installed Blender, not used to this UI. Having trouble finding a lot of things, but getting by. Can't get by without this though, there used to be material options but either that got thrown out recently, or I'm in the wrong render mode. I think I'm in Blender Render, but I've not seen where that's shown or can be changed in v2.81.16.

  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean the Vertex Paint mode as shown in this screenshot? $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Nov 29 '19 at 17:59

In the top-right corner you will see this control:

From left to right the buttons are:

  • Wirefame : Display the object as wire edges
  • Solid : Display in solid mode
  • Material : Preview Display material preview
  • Render : Display render preview

First the video, then some explanation: enter image description here

In the top left corner of your 3D View window, there you can find a Combo Box with the choice for "Object Mode" usually the one you start in, "Edit Mode" and further down "Vertex Paint Mode". That said, materials, you find on the right side down, in the "Properties Panel", all the way down. If you ask for material related settings in the render settings, 2nd from top, then you will have to consider which render-engine you want to use. Evee and Cycles have "some" specific options, while most materials you can set up with the nodes can be used with both. In case something does not work, you can build one material with 2 output nodes, one for Evee and one for cycles.
