I have made a group node for one material. Now i want to use this group node for multiple different materials. Is there a shorter way than just copying it manually in every material which is very tidy...?

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe scripting. Have you tried that? And what you mean by "apply" a group node? $\endgroup$ – Carlo Jan 13 at 9:14
  • $\begingroup$ i mean just "use" -> add it before the output. Well...äh...scripting....i still have to learn that, all i did until now was using command line ...and calling some mini python scripts.... for sure, this i could not do at the moment unfortunately :( $\endgroup$ – Chris Jan 13 at 11:16
  • $\begingroup$ As far as i understood, you made a node group and you want it to go to other materials as well? Well, if it is a node group then in the shader editor Shift + A -> Group -> That group you made. And remember that you can still just use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V for nodes as well. $\endgroup$ – TheMadTomato1209 Jan 13 at 20:31
  • $\begingroup$ i know i can do ctrl + c and ctrl + v - > but then i have to do this for every material i have, right? so, click on material, then tap ctrl + v, then move the node to the right place, and this for all 100 materials (ok, a bit less), but i hoped for something like ctrl-L functionality ;) $\endgroup$ – Chris Jan 13 at 20:36
