Change Material Vaulted Ceiling

Recommended Posts

I am about to pull my hair out.  I want to change the vaulted ceiling material from a white tongue and groove to a pine tongue and groove. I have done this is 3 locations,with no success. I've changed it in the room definitions structures tab (ceiling finish), room definitions materials tab, and the roof plane definitions. I do not have the 'use ceiling finish' checked in the roof plane definitions. 

 

For some reason my plan will not upload. Go figure. 

 

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Anna

Okay,  did you change it in the CEILING edit box?

If you have a common rafter vault the object you need to access is the roof planes which form the ceiling.

 

If you have a scissor truss vault, then it is the custom ceiling planes dialog box that needs accessing.

Select the material in the library, apply to the ceiling in a camera view.

3 answers,  Eric probably has the quickest and simplest solution.

Yes - Eric that worked! Haha. This is my first time using CA. You saved my day!

 

DS Hall - thank you as well. I had the 'use ceiling finish' both checked and unchecked and it didn't do anything. Maybe just a glitch today, or maybe there was another basic step I was forgetting. 

 

Thanks again - this forum is keeping me sane.

 

Best,

 

Anna

Click the Material Painter, select Use Default Material at the bottom, then click on the ceiling.

 

I'm guessing that will reset things so your settings in the dialogs would take.

Matt,

 

Probably because you had the same material for both the ceiling attached to the roof and the room's default ceiling material. 

Thus, when you changed that setting, you couldn't see any difference.
