I'm new to blender but I'm trying to add eyebrows etc onto a mask I've created. The problem is following videos when going onto materials they get options such as specular and diffuse all in separate tabs when they create a material. I don't. I do when I create a new blender and with the cube selecting materials I get all of those different drop down tabs so it's not a version issue.

But with my mask at the moment under materials I only get - diffuse, surface, volume, displacement and it also doesn't display the color I select onto my object. I know its a probably a silly little thing I've done but I can't figure it out.


Sounds like the render engine is set to Cycles, but the tutorial is using Blender Internal.

You can change the render engine in the info header at the top of the window:
