Title: Materials Black in Editor Viewport
Post by: kmwhitt on 2017-10-26, 15:50:02
With the latest build (10-25-17), all of my materials are showing as black in the editor window.  They render fine, but this is making it impossible to work with IR as I can't see where I'm going.  The materials are nothing special (diffuse + reflection) - no metals.  Image maps show up fine.  Any suggestions?

Should have said I am using R18.

You're not alone. Same story for me since the latest install.

Open the material -> Preview -> Check uncheck "overide preview preference"

Back to normal !

Hi,

This is a very strange problem. There are no changes between 2017-10-24 and 2017-10-25 which can cause such issues. Does a clean installation of Corona for Cinema 4D help?

A clean install makes no difference, but it will straighten itself out after restarting C4D.  CBAS Visuals suggestion works, but that's cumbersome with so many materials in my scene.
