Material database returns!

Post by benn » Wed Jun 10, 2009 6:29 pm

The material database is back. Post in this thread if you find any issues or incorrect uploader information in the database. Next up - some material competitions, material database integration into the plugins and the beta of the material editor! :)

hey ben,

thats my material:
http://www.indigorenderer.com/materials/materials/77

and "view source" does not work with it, "downlad" just shows the igm in the browser (firefox, works in IE8) and the link to the materials is missing in the page header on the material site.

Forgot the special chars guys. Indigo is not supporting them anyway. That "e" made IE to stop showing XML. There are more important things than Yves last name (no offence Yves :wink: ).

What?
IE validates the xml before showing. That "e" gave "invalid character" error.

depends of which software you use. it might be a little complicated at the moment, but that will be sorted in the next iterations of the exporters...
