exporting shaders between scenes
Hi all. I have an idea to put some ropes in the scene I am working on, and I remember that I created a nice rope shader with displacement in an old scene of mine. How do you go about exporting shaders from one scene to another? I had a go at selecting the shader in question and hitting 'export with network', or 'export network'. I saved it in to the shaders folder of the renderData folder of the scene I want to use it in, and Maya put an obj and an mtl file there. In the hypershade in the current scene I went to import, but importing the obj file brought in a whole load of geometry from the original scene (the one i want to take the shader from), and trying the mtl file, maya tells me it is an unrecognized file type. (which is a lie? surely maya knows what an mtl file is, even if it just doesnt want to open one.)
anybody done this or know how its done?
