For BaseMaterials we have the function Compare . this compares 2 materials and reports either true , if they are the same or false if not the same.
this function works most of the time.But it is fatally flawed.
if you compare 2 volume shaders(of same type) from SLA which are clearly different , it will report them as being the same!!!!
this is a very nasty bug and renders the compare function useless.
I have tried to catch the exeption and compare the basecontainers form the 2 materials , however these also report "same"
the materials are clearly not the same , so this must be a bug.
can someone offer a workaround or please fix it
there seems to be no way to tell 2 sla volume shaders apart !!!!
