    Hello

    Trying to set metallic property on material but is constantly failing.
    When using Standard Roughness, should this be set with _Metallic property?

    Running 2017.2.0f3

    Error:
    Simple editor script to replicate:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. using UnityEngine;
    2. using UnityEditor;
    3. public class TestMetallic : MonoBehaviour
    4. {
    5.     [MenuItem("Assets/Test Metallic...")]
    6.     public static void test()
    7.     {
    8.         Material material = new Material(Shader.Find("Standard (Roughness setup)"));
    9.         Texture2D t = new Texture2D(256, 256);
    10.         material.SetTexture("_Metallic", t);    
    11.     }
    12. }
