Material Preview Scene????

I have searched for many hours looking for the blender material preview scene blendfile. I’ve only found amazing materials from amazing artists, but I never found the sample scene they used to display their materials

I’m looking for this scene:

Can someone PLEASE post a direct link to the blendfile that contains this ball-shaped thing in it (I just need the scene, it doesn’t matter what material it’s using) I see that everyone is using it to test materials, but no one has it to download. (>_<)

I This scene should really be on blender’s official site, or somehow accessible from blender itself.

Thank you :slight_smile:

I’m wondering if this file is a mere figment of our collective imaginations, and that it only exists in the form of 2d rendered images :lol

THANK YOU OMG THANK YOU

You’re a life saver, I saw posts from that user before in my searches, but they were just discussing the material preview file, that thread didn’t show up :confused:

Much appreciated, thank you :smiley:

Mind you, though, that this file is from 2009. Adapting that to 2014 Cycles might need some time and effort…:wink:

I found out there is a cycles version. https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-blender/trunk/lib/tests/rendering/cycles/

People have been using it for awhile, but all the links are dead now.
That link is dead, as well as the others that would lead to the cycles version.

I have a copy of the bmps for cycles… glad to share :wink:

Wait I found the location of the Cycles version:
https://projects.blender.org/scm/viewvc.php/trunk/lib/tests/rendering/cycles/blend_files/bmps.blend?view=log&root=bf-blender&pathrev=52705

I never would have found it without your help :slight_smile:
The author abbreviated “Blender Material Preview Scene” to “B.M.P.S” after searching that I eventually found it through a link from a Blendswap upload:

That was fun, thank you for your help :slight_smile:

edit: the user above this post just found it as I was posting this message LOL

Thank you, you just ninja’ed me by two minutes (after I found it the hard way) LOL.

Thanks the one you linked me to is better than the one I tracked down. Much appreciated :slight_smile:
