public var sharedMaterial: Material;
public Material sharedMaterial;


The shared material of this object.

Modifying sharedMaterial will change the appearance of all objects using this material, and change material settings that are stored in the project too.

It is not recommended to modify materials returned by sharedMaterial. If you want to modify the material of a renderer use material instead.
