Hi all, When you have created a custom material via 'Settings>Materials...' including a new material you have created for the acurender library, where or what files is the new information stored? cadjockey

cadjockey, Go to "settings" "options", click on the rendering folder and there you will see where the accurender resource is located. On the same window you can add more rendering material directories. Hope thats clear enough.

jaybo you can use your jpgs for new materials in the material editor there is a tab that says maps and from there you can browse to the location of your jpgs

Thanks for the replies but I was refering to the two different locations of the Materials file. One is located via the 'Application Data.....' path and has the 'revir.mlib' in the other is located in the Library in the Renerdering file and contains the images. I am trying to understand what happens when I make an adjustment in the materials interface. That is to set a materials structure ie. it's acurender setting,cut pattern etc. Is this information stored within the revit.mlib file? cadjockey PS : I am swapping between two different computers. Since the Data file whch contains the revit.mlib file is located on the C drive of these systems should this file be on the server?
