Has there been any update on this bug? From either Enscape or McNeel? Bug: same material ID color used for different materials
I am also relying on material IDs to manage a selection of 6500+ bricks of different colours/textures/emissive textures1, and am struggling to get much done with my different workarounds.
Any news would be appreciated (to pass on to my bosses to convince i'm not making it up!)
