I think you misunderstood me. Each mesh part uses 1 material. But several different parts use the same material. Example: The model contains 8 heads, each using the same "head.png" material... b...

Post: RE: Dynamic scale of Chr

I would prefer dynamic for sure... but even with this method - is it possible to scale by a Vec instead of float ( ie: non-uniform scale...) ?

Post: Dynamic scale of Chr

Can you change the scale of a player dynamically? I tried doing a player.matrix().scale(Vec (1,2,1)).. no effect.. tried setting it up in a preRender function also.. any suggestions?
