Want to copy lightworks materials from 2017pp to 2018pp, can they be just copied over from folder to folder?

Or is there a better method?

Just replace your 2018 Propin.dat file with a copy of the 2017 Propin.dat. Better rename the current 2018 file first for safekeeping (I change "Propin.dat" to "PropindatOOB").

Another option that I use on occasion is "Options / Materials / Load Materials". I 'browse' to the Materials folder in the other version and select its "Propin.dat" or a "*.mat" file. The available materials will be listed in the right pane. The "Select All" option will turn all the Materials off or on, though I usually leave everything checked.
