My material works in the editor but not when I attach it to things.
click save or apply on the material if you haven't yet. if the problem persists for debugging purposes, place a constant of 1 into the emissive and save, it should turn white and work as expected. if it does turn white then there is something going on in the material graph. you can probably narrow it down yourself just using the process of elimination, but if you want the community's help then you will need to post pics of the entire graph.
