Painting with Materials
0:05 Painting with the Airbrush | 0:35 Adding Materials to Objects
Most things in FirstStage are constructed from triangle meshes. Each mesh can have its own material and depending on how a thing is constructed it might have just the one material or many.
Go to the Materials palette on the WristPad and click on one of the material balls: you will now be holding the Paint Roller with that material on the brush. The left hand column shows a list of tags: click on one to select materials with that tag. At the bottom of that list is a switch that lets you choose between spheres or cubes for demonstrating the materials.
Point the Paint Roller at a thing and click the trigger to paint it with that material.
Plain Color allows you to choose a color from a palette along with the gloss and metallic/plasticness of the material. On the right is a list of saved colors and you can save the current material to the list with the + button.
The eyedropper tool is another special tool that lets you pick a color from any other thing by pointing at it and clicking .
