Some of you may have seen my old Materials Library from time to time.
It’s current home is here:
The basic Blender Internal Materials which I made or collected from the community, were quite good as examples of what you can do & as starting points for learning & improving your own materials.
Well, It’s about time for an update!
I’m looking for submissions for all categories.
Please, submit materials in .blend format, you can use http://www.pasteall.org/blend/
Once the Library is completed,
1/ It will be released on Blendswap with author attribution, under CC0
Please note: I will be attributing the authors,
however you will not be required to attribute the authors if you use the materials.
So the actual lib will be CC0
2/ I’ll set a Python Mat library to include all materials.
3/ Said library will go into Blender Contrib for all to use.
4/ Start online repository via addon to browse & load materials.
I will in the Blend file include the names of all authors who contribute.
In the py addon this will also be possible.
Remember, we are dealing with Blender materials & we all have access to the same tools.
Please Note 2:
I know we need a better way for a mat lib & presets in Blender.
This is a way forward.
Edit! Beta Release 3!!
Hi, for several weeks I have been collecting Cycles Node set ups & materials.
The goal is to provide a fairly comprehensive Material Library for Cycles.
I’m currently seeking Materials & Textures (Cycles only, no images) to build upon this library to present the community with a .blend mat lib (availible on Blendswap) & a Python Addon Material Lib for Contrib addons.
All Category’s have Basic/Simple, Advanced/Open Nodes & Advanced Grouped Nodes.
Category’s as stands & needed materials/textures:
Carpaint Wood Stone Synthetic Skin Organic Earth Textile Others Misc.
I’ve renamed all the materials & It’t time for a beta release of the .blend mat lib.
Materials with the suffix category_matname_G contain groups.
Special Thanks to all the contributors so far.

This is a community effort to provide ourselves with a decent mat lib.
