Override obj materials, one way...

Hi, took me some investigation to find a way how to get rid of the nice magenta rendering ;)

I don't know if this is the only way or if I can delete any former materials directly, but I added a material node under the file import node and for the group I entered @shop_materialpath=="/mat/floor" as you can see in the spreadsheet primitives tab and as material I set a predefined Octane material.

Any other known/better way to handle this?

You can set the materials at the OBJ level using the "Material" parameter, or if you are importing objects with groups or you want to set materials at the primitive level using the Material SOP. These are the two standard ways to set the materials in Houdini.
