Material ID acces

I have been testing the Fabric for max and it looks nice, I must say I'm an xsi user that's involved in a max project.....

I have seen that the geometry input to canvas brings the uvs of the geometry, but not the material IDS or any other attribute.
I was wonder if there is a way of get that attribute list per geometry, so I can store that attribute into an alembic file.

    Hi Pedro

    This is not possible right now. We have FABMAX-45 to add support for arbitrary channels (that could include the material IDs as well).

    Hi Borja!
    Thanks for reply, I have done a maxscript that gets the material ID and sets into an input port array. That seems to work but, now I'm having troubles writing that attribute to an alembic file. I have created another thread in the general section about that...

    Thanks anyway!!
