Okay, so I have DONE this. Multiple times. But I can't remember wtf I did and searches for this are useless for the same reason you can't easily do research on the word "The".

What is the node that I use to create custom values to be adjusted in the materials settings? You know, so I don't have to go in through the shader editor?


  • $\begingroup$ Are you talking about the Principled BSDF? $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Sep 11 '20 at 20:35
  • $\begingroup$ No. I am talking about a node that you add and plug into a value and then you are able to then modify that value as a slider in the material settings sidebar. $\endgroup$ – DocBadwrench Sep 11 '20 at 20:36
  • $\begingroup$ There are any number of nodes that you can plug into a material output that provide a "slider" in the properties panel. What type of value are you trying to adjust? $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Sep 11 '20 at 20:41
  • $\begingroup$ I'm just going to research wherever I did this other material work. $\endgroup$ – DocBadwrench Sep 11 '20 at 20:46
  • $\begingroup$ I literally don't know how to say the same thing a third way. You designate a value to show up in the vertical stack of material items on the right hand side of the Layout workspace. I know there are existing ones. I get that. I can designate one to be among the MAIN ones. $\endgroup$ – DocBadwrench Sep 11 '20 at 20:52
