A material library will be added to Blender for 2.5 we would like to invite the community to participate in this by donating material settings. In order to facilitate this, please provide a link to a blend file with a single material in it. The naming of the material
should be in the following format.
So for example
The ‘fast/quality’ is optional.
You can also include the name of the material creator.
For submittals we would also like a render of the material applied to the appropriate test object(s) in the “Blender Material Preview Scenes” created by Robin Marín (tuqueque)
Note that as stated in the readme - you should make sure that your screen is set to a 2.2 gamma and color corrected - otherwise you might end up wondering why your amazing looking material got rejected
For all submittals given that they possibly used in all sorts of works, and numerous materials will be used in a single work, the license for most of the materials will probably need to be something along the lines of public domain - thus a statement of ‘The Blender Foundation has my permission to release this material under a license of its choosing’ would be good to add.
Also if your material is derived from someone elses please let us know.
The categories are
We can also have an ‘other’ and you can suggest other categories as well, but preferably submittals should fall into one of the above.
