I have two different files (rigs) which I would like to append one to the other, I did this by appending the object of one. Although now the material of this object is missing. How do i append it?

    $\begingroup$ When you appended the object, blender also should of taken the material too. You may have some other problem here. $\endgroup$

You append Materials like everything else in Blender:

  • In your new blend file, go to append:Append menu
  • Select the blend file with the original material, and click "Append" to browse its contents.
  • In it, go to the folder called "Material" (or "Mesh" or "Object" or "Texture" or something else depending on what you want to append) inside a blend file
  • Select the materials (meshes, objects, textures, ...) you want to import and hit "append from library".
