We published fourth Materials Pack - November 2005. This package is alot smaller than previous ones as it contains only 22 free materials made by few authors, our dear members
ania, JolleJ, cioccolo, Nukie and Eumel3d. You can easily install and uninstall these materials with only few mouse clicks. Special thanks goes to the authors and invitation to others - please keep submiting your materials if you want to see this section active in next months...
Normally you download textures, or you take your digital camera, go out and take some photos. When you have all of your pictures you start your copy of 3dsmax and put them together to some cool looking material. This takes a lot of time, and beginners in 3dsmax often have troubles to do it right, and they often forget that placing a bitmap in the diffuse slot is far away from being enough to get a good looking material. That is the reason why we have created the material-section.
Wouldnt it be great if you could use all those materials ever made by anyone?
We think YES, and that is the reason why we bring you this 4th package of materials that includes a .mat file and all the textures you need.
And the best thing is: The whole package can easily be installed and uninstalled as we post the various packages as .exe files.
All you have to do is to tell the little program where your copy of 3dsmax is installed. The rest is done automatically (works with max6 and max7; others were not tested yet). Cool, isnt it?
As said before, we are planning to post a monthly package. Problem is that we cant do the whole work on his own. Thats the reason why we ask YOU to submit some of your materials and help us to help you.
3dk-materials-nov05 in your 3dsmax/matlibs/ folder
Just open the material-editor, and select that material-library from the list and you are ready to use all the materials.
