I'm not sure why it doesn't work, but it doesn't seem to work...

Nice! This technique works great with HDAs. It would be nice if it would work with Object Merge nodes as well, to get to sop_materialpath from sops.

hello Solaris team --

I have a tricky issue I've been trying to solve for a few days - I've got several years of HDAs, things like tables and chairs, which all assign materials in SOPs. In general these don't use groups, but rather assign materials before a merge. for example, a chair with a slatted seat and back would have slatMat assigned and legMat assigned, and then the two streams are combined for output.

i've got the material library in LOPs no problem - is there a way to assign it using shop_materialpath?

thanks!
