I am trying to assign some of the predefined materials in omniverse, but for some reason all of the materials are locked (Image 1) and whenever I drag one of the materials to the asset, nothing happens (Image 2 after assigning Wood Bark material). Is it possible to remove this lock sign on the materials? I tried to change the permissions but it is not possible.
Thanks in advance!
I believe the lock just means you can’t edit those assets since they are shipped with OV. I wouldn’t recommend disabling it (if it’s even possible).
Personally, I don’t have issues dragging and dropping; that said, it does take a few seconds for it to be binded to the prim so try holding down the button a bit longer before you release it (you should be prompted a “Create Material” dialog). Alternatively, you can right click on any material and choose to “Bind material to selected prim(s)” option (see attached) if drag and drop doesn’t work
Another dev has also mentioned you can copy the assets into a separate location to allow read/write operations - Nvidia folder lock in the local host - #2 by dlindsey
