Materials from RH7 to RH 8?

How do I get my materials from RH7 to be available in RH 8? I copied the folder C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0\Localization\en-US\Render Content

over to

C\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\8.0\Localization\en-US\Render Content.

But the materials don’t show up.

Hi @CalypsoArt,

You can navigate to the Rhino 7 Render Content folder when using ‘Import from material library’ in the Materials panel…


You can also use the File Explorer panel to add a custom folder to that location if needed…

I hope that helps.

Thanks. I was expecting to see the “Wood” folder within the render content folder to show up in this panel.

You’d have to use the File Explorer panel for that.
