Description

Material Blend is the Multi-Channel, Full Material Equivalent of the atomic Blend Node. It blends between two full materials (all possibe channels) based on a grayscale mask, or optionally based on one single color from a Color ID mask.

This node is useful if you want to blend two materials and have a grayscale map but no full Color ID bake. If you do have a Color ID bake and want to blend more than two materials, we suggest you use Multi-Material Blend.
