View Full Version : Select faces by material

07-24-2006, 02:43 PM
I have a scene with multiple objects all with the same shader. Some of these objects also have other shaders assigned to parts of them. I want to select all the faces on ONE of these objects that a specific shader is assigned to. Any one know how I can do this?

If I use 'Select objects with material' in hypershade, it selects all faces from all objects, I only want the faces from one object.

I'm sure I figured out a way to do this easily before, but just can't remember how :sad:

This is not as easy as it seems initially and I can't think of anything elegant using the UI.
One way is:

hide the object
Select Objects With Material
In face selection mode Ctrl + drag all
Show Last Hidden.
