Display Different materials for different scenes

#1

Hello all, this is my first visit here. I am working on some presentation images for a client who wants to see a few different material choices on a wall.

I have created different scenes and thought that I would be able to apply a different material for each scene but every time I update my scenes they all revert to the material I added last. Am I missing something basic here or is there not a way to do this?

Any guidance is much appreciated, Andy.

Materials are not scene specific. A scene is essentially a camera view. You can make copies of the components/groups and put them on different layers. Apply different materials to different instances of the components/groups and use the Layers to determine which ones are visible in each scene.

Thanks DaveR. That answers my question perfectly.
