    Posted: 01.Jul.2010 at 05:37
Hey everyone,

Currently when I open my scene it is telling me that one of my materials is missing a file. I know this since I deleted an object that was using the material and then deleted the material from the folder I had it in. I condensed the material slots during the creation process and now I can't seem to find the material that is trying to use that file to unlink the file from it. Any suggestions on how to find it?

Regards,

Open Max and Merge your scene file into the new blank scene. I'm not sure about this, but I'm thinking that your missing material might get stripped out during the Merge, since it's not attached to any models?

Post back and let me know if this works or not.
