Hello,

 

I've two issues I don't know how to solve.

 

1. I completed creating my marble material and when I plug the it into a base material node, in 3D view the cube is black and in 2D view is grey. (1st screenshot)

   However, if I plug the same material into each specific node output (roughness, normal, height), I can clearly see the material in 3D. I don't understand why. (2nd screenshot)

 

2. Now this marble material, I want to add it into a second graph and use it there, but it also comes out as grey. (3rd screenshot) [this happens even if I use the second method where I plug my material into each specific output]

 

What am I doing wrong?

Hello @RoxanaMD,

 

This is in fact the expected behavior. The result of the graph are the output nodes.

 

As instance, a typical PBR material will usually have a Base Color, Roughness, Metallic, Normal and Height map. Therefore, all these maps will need to have their own Output node.

I personnaly advise you to use the Metallic Roughness template when creating a new graph, so all the proper Outputs will already be set up.

Natively, the Outputs should be displayed in the 3D view, but if for some reason this isn't the case, you can RMB anywhere in the graph and View outputs in 3D view.

 

To add the result of the graph in another graph, you can simply drag and drop it from the explorer panel. This will build a node from the graph.

 

If you want to display a single node in the 3D view (as the Base Material node), you can RMB on the node and View in 3D view. Please note that the Base Material shouldn't be the last node of the graph. Only outputs define the graph's results.
