Help Please

Post by 3ddd »

Please could one of the Blender Developers/Users please help me.

I am new to Blender and have previously been using other types of 3D
programs, which work in slightly different ways.

I am trying to use the (Car Paint) material that i downloaded from the
Blender repositry.

I am a little confused which is the best way of applying one of the several Car paint materials to my own model i built in Blender.

I load the car Paint Blender file and i see that in the 3D Scene window
there are several sphere's with various types of car paint materials applied, also there is a text description next to each sphere with the names of the materials.

Plaese could you tell me if i should save my model out as say a .obj or .dxf file then import my model into the Car paint materials scene. Then
delete all of the spheres and text from the scene. i really am very confused how to do this.

I do know how to apply materials to my model, but not how to do this when materials have been pre-built as a Blender file.

I am just starting to learn Blender 2.41 and think the program is fantastic
it is very well designed and some of the things it can do are amazing from what i have seen.

I wish to thank all of the Blender developers and user.s and the community for allowing me to download and use this great program.

I think that the "Elephants Dream" movie Rocks. well done all who worked on it, what an inpiration for me to have a go at making my animation in Blender.

Hope somebody can help.

Many thanks

Gary (Blender Newbie)
