Flamingo nxt material files into R7

Hi have been trying to move over to R7 for rendering from flamingo but struggling to understand.
How (if possible) can I convert my render material files from flamingo to R7 - it appears that the .ArMaterial file is not recognised by R7.
Any clues as to what I’m doing wrong?

you will likely need to remake your materials for rhino render.

this is a worthwhile effort as Flamingo development has ended, and the program will be retired.

keep in mind that rhino render now supports PBR and Substance source materials.

I think you’ll find these are superior to what flamingo offers.

Thanks - was coming to that conclusion - but still taking a bit of time to learn as I seem to be missing something basic that stops me from getting them right! - oh well Christmas is going to be busy :confused:
