The multiblend tools inside the displacement sculpt window.

MultiBlend is a shader found in newer versions of Source (Alien Swarm). It allows for blending only on displacement surfaces using up to four different materials.

The texture preview in hammer requires you to set up additional VMT files for each texture to show up in the dialog. Those are not used by the shader itself.

Note.png Note: Although present in the Alien Swarm version of Source, this shader does not seem to fully work and renders fullbright in-game.
Note.png Note: This shader should not be used in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, use Lightmapped_4WayBlend instead.
