Xref for Materials only

Recommended Posts

I have two product models that I am completing for a client. I want to share materials between these two products and from what I have read it sounds like Xref might be the best way to do this. I will need to bring the two models into the same scene for some renders, but not all, so I need to be able to reference either a master set of materials, or the materials from the first model. At this point though, I only want the materials, not the whole model from the which the materials are being generated. 


If there is maybe a better way to manage the materials between scenes I'd sure appreciate some pointers, and if Xref can work for importing materials only, that would be great too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
