      You can use and save materials for use with the Cycles Render Engine with the VX Material Library plugin that Sensei Format 3 uses, however none of the materials it comes with are set up to work with cycles by default.

      In other words, materials you install or create for Cycles Render Engine can be saved in the material library and then used across all your projects, but none of the materials Sensei Format 3 comes with work with Cycles.

      NOTE: Switching to Cycles Render Engine will make some of the menu items near the bottom of the camera view look weird, but will return to normal as soon as you switch the render engine back to Blender Render.

      Yeah man, sorry. I don’t really focus on Cycles at all. Cycles is definitely awesome, the problem is it’s creating this huge fork in Blender as a whole. One day when it becomes better integrated into the main workings of Blender I’ll totally jump ship, but for now you can get really amazing results with Blender’s basic render engine, I don’t think people realize how good stuff can look with it when you have things set up decently to begin with. I think most people never get there though because the default settings in Blender are so bad, that’s half of why I’m doing what I’m doing though.
