Welcome to the Material Nodes example level! This Content Example is designed to familiarize you with the different inputs available on Materials, demonstrating how each one can be used.

As you move through the level, you will see a series of labeled plinths or displays. On each display is a number and short description, which corresponds to a section within this document. By cross-referencing what you see in the level with what you read here in the docs, you can quickly gain an understanding of how each example was created. For more information on how to use this example level, please see our documentation over Using Content Examples .

Some of the examples you see in the level may require you to Play (Alt-P) or Simulate (Alt-S) in order to see the full nature of the effect. In such cases, the display plinth will instruct you to do so. However, feel free to play the game in the Editor at any time and freely wander through the exhibits!

As with all Content Examples, this level is meant to be interactive. With any of the Material samples you see displayed, you can select them with the left mouse button, and then preview their Material by double-clicking on the Material in the Details panel listed under Element 0 as shown below.
