The Material/Map Browser lets you browse and load maps from material libraries, the Material Editor, and the current scene. You can also use the Browser to load new map types.

To browse maps:

Open a scene that has some materials and maps in it, such as Earth.max.

2.
Open the Material Editor.

3.
Click Get Material .

The Material/Map Browser appears.

4.
Uncheck Show Materials so that just maps are displayed.

5.
Choose a display option by clicking an icon at the top of the Browser.

6.
Choose a source to browse from (Figure 14.3).

Figure 14.3. As you choose each option, the maps that are available at that location appear in the Browser.

Scroll through the list and click on any map that interests you (Figure 14.4).
