How to import assets from unity store with .mat files

I got some FBX models from unity store, but some of them do not have png or jepg files for their texture, they use unity .mat file. Is there a way I can import .mat file into playcanvas or may convert it somewhere?

Hi @chawang and welcome!

.mat files don’t contain texture information, usually just coloring and other simple material settings.

You can’t import them directly in Playcanvas, but in most cases you will get a number of materials created with the basic info set when importing the model.

If that’s not the case what I usually do is import the model in Unity and create the materials in Playcanvas manually by looking the properties from the Unity inspector.

thank you very much Leo! and thanks for providing such a great platform, i really enjoy using it!
