Materials in Rhino


Enscape for Rhino supports only basic (Rhino 5) or custom (Rhino 6) materials, no blend or composite material are supported at the moment. Rhino’s material editor is good enough, and includes enough preset materials, that only the keywords ‘Grass’ and ‘Water’, ‘Ocean’, and ‘River’ will affect the way Rhino displays materials in Enscape, as these are two materials that Rhino does not have as presets.



Water, Ocean, RiverDraws the material as a water surface.
GrassRealistic grass material based on the underlying surface color.


The following picture indicates the possible properties for basic materials that can be changed in the material editor of Rhino. Areas that have a white overlay are not supported or not available at the moment. All the Advanced Settings are functional in both Rhino 5 and Rhino 6.

This image shows how textures can be adjusted in the Rhino material editor for Enscape. Output Adjustment is supported in both Rhino 5 and Rhino 6. UVs always relate to the Mapping Channel = 1, even if you choose another channel.
