The materials on this page can be used for commercial and noncommercial projects. They are totally free, so go ahead and have fun! At the moment I am working on Cinema 4D content packs – other material libraries (i.e. Blender and Autodesk are in planning.)
Note: Every 3D engine can handle the RAW bitmap data, so you can load the JPG/PNG files in any case.
Every used texture offers a minimum of 2000 px on the smallest side. Most of the photos were taken with the Nikon D800 (35 mm full frame DSLR) with superb optics. So you can get really near in your renderings.
To ensure that you no moiré will occur in your work a lot of materials contain textures with resolutions above 4K with improved compressing algorithms.
The Cinema 4D Library Packs offer you at least a texture image (diffuse map), a custom made normal map and a displacement map for each material. (Please be aware that though displacement looks awesome it can increase your rendertime severely.)
Furthermore the materials contain alpha, ambient occlusion und specular lighting settings if necessary.
Short answer: YES! For details in licensing please see the licensing section. I am also very grateful for every donation.
Yes absolutely. Every material library contains the used JPEGs. You can use these pictures also standalone. (Please let me know, when you need data larger than 8K. Maybe you are lucky.)
Simply copy the lib4d file(s) into your C4D application folder under /library/browser. After restarting Cinema 4D you can access the materials via the content browser.
I do not have the time to build up extra libraries for other tools than Cinema 4D at the moment. BUT: You can download the assets of every material (including the texture itself and all maps needed) to build up your own library.
Because you do not need any other stuff than the standalone photo, simply download the JPEG file and do what you have to do.
For the "basic" textures I use the Nikon D800 full frame DSLR. In my lensbag I always carry:
To sum up: Around 15 kilograms of gear in one backpack.

This project depends on you! If you like what you see, you can make a little donation to ensure that I do have enough coffee to keep the engine running.
