I'm new to blender and still trying some simple things.
I have a scene and importing various models I download from blendswap.com.
The problem I have is: no matter what import option I use, be it append Shift + F1, or simple copy-paste, objects are copied without materials and textures.
What I usually do, since models I import consist of many objects, is group them, and then import, so I can easily manipulate them.
Here is one example:
- Download and open the model
- Select all objects in one of three chairs in the scene
- Copy Ctrl + C
- Open my blender file
- Paste Ctrl + V
- Create a group
But the problem is that just the models import, I see no colors or materials when I render the scene.
I also tried
File > External Data > Find missing, as well as googled around, however I had no luck finding the solution to this problem.
