Material or Object set?

Hello, I found the Arnold Matte feature to be invaluable. A drawback is that you can only set one object at a time to be Matte.

If you select 75 objects and hit matte it only does the first one. Is there a utility or a way to group objects so that they can be selected and checked at once? I remember something like this in a tutorial but don't know what it was called. Thanks.

Hello Derryl,

You should be able to edit the object matte property of a group of objects at once using the "attribute spreadsheet" as described here: https://arnoldsupport.com/2013/03/01/mtoa-editing-arnold-attributes-on-multiple-objects/
