Adding a custom shader to shader library + load by default?


I was just wondering how you add a particular shader you've made as a default shader, so that every time you open Maya it's available, even in a new project or something?

I haven't come across a way inside the UI, but its probably possible through editing some of the UI mel scripts.

One (nasty) way to do it, is to do it on your lambert1 shader. This will make all new objects have this material, and will be loaded by default.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
