Linked Objects​

When picking a linked Material you can automatically open the corresponding file to edit it. The changes will update immediately when tabbing back.

Instanced Objects​

When picking a material of instanced objects the original object will automatically be searched and selected with the picked material active.

Quality guaranteed

Made with a Professional

Material Picker was designed with the help of a 3D Artist with the goal of
speeding up your everyday workflow, especially when working with larger scenes.

That’s what he is saying:

I can’t even think about the inability to quickly and easily select the desired material in Blender due to its multiple branching options of ways that objects can be brought together to get the final result… without spewing the most disparaging vulgarities about how I despise that aspect of Blender. I’ve got one less thing to vex me now.
