    Default Trying to change Body Color of downloaded model

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi,
    I'm trying to change the color of this semi to 57% reflective white, but cannot figure it out. Any notes?

    (The file was too large to load on the forum)

    Thanks!

    Look like it required a sign-up on site to download - so I didn't.
    But my guess is you need to check the Strip-Overrides box when changing the Properties.
    To create a custom color go into the Styles Editor.

    Perfect. The check box fixed it Thanks for that!

    So is the Strips-Overrides for any change in material/color style or only on downloaded/foreign files like this?

    Only some (not all) neutral format files.
