Material Inspector reference

When you select a material asset in your Unity project, you can view and edit it using the Inspector window. For general information on materials, see Materials introduction.


The following controls are available:

Control Функция:
Settings Click the gear icon in the top right of the Inspector to open the Settings menu for the material and access the following options:
Select Shader Selects the Unity shader in the Project view.
Edit Shader Opens the source file for the Unity shader in your default external text editor.
Create Material Preset Creates a duplicate of the material at the same location in your project.
Copy Material Properties Copies the material properties to the clipboard.
Paste Material Properties If the clipboard contains material properties, Unity pastes them into this material. Otherwise, it has no effect.
Copy Atlas If the material is a Text Mesh Pro material, Unity copies the font atlas to the clipboard. Otherwise, it has no effect.
Paste Atlas If the material is a Text Mesh Pro material and the clipboard contains a Text Mesh Pro font atlas, Unity pastes it into this material. Otherwise, it has no effect.
Reset Reset all material properties to the default values defined in the Unity shader.
Shader Use this drop-down menu to assign a Unity shader to this material.

Unity shaders are organised according to their name. For more information on assigning a name to a Unity shader in ShaderLab code, see ShaderLab: assigning a name to a Unity shader.


The properties that the Unity Editor displays for a material depend on the Unity shader that the material uses. This section of the Inspector window can look very different depending on the Unity shader.

For the material properties defined in Unity’s built-in shaders, see the following pages:

Property Функция:
[Material properties, based on the Unity shader] The properties for the currently selected Unity shader.

For more information, see Assigning Material properties to a Unity shader.
Render Queue By default, materials use the render queue defined in their Unity shader. Use this drop-down menu to override this if required. For more information on render queues, see ShaderLab: SubShader Tags.

Corresponds to the Material.renderQueue property.
Double Sided Global Illumination When enabled, the Progressive Lightmapper accounts for both sides of the geometry when calculating Global Illumination. This means that back-facing polygons bounce light using the same emission and albedo as front facing polygons. Note that Unity this does not mean that Unity renders back facing polygons, or adds them to lightmaps.

Corresponds to the Material.doubleSidedGI property.
