firstly, thanks alot for this addon! so i've installed the addon, and that worked, but it doesn't seem to load the library. (i' m using Blender 2.76; i installed it according to what you called "Type 3")
Koyaanisquatsy, the file structure should be: \2.76\scripts\addons\materials_library-master with all the file inside that.
hmm, that is the file structure that i have. is there anything else i could have done wrong, in the installation?
do you see the menu like here?: http://www.pasteall.org/pic/96985
yes, i do see that menu.
what i do not see are the actual materials.(not in that menu anyway) i can use blenders append-function to get the materials, but i haven´t figured out how to see them in that addon-menu.
Thanks for featuring some of my materials! this is a very useful resource :)
are these blender game engine textures? if so i'm sooooo using them.
Thank you!!! Happy New Year and Christmas!
Cycles or Internal??
hi, cycles only not bge or internal render. for internal render materials library, check my files the first one is all blender internal.
super thank you! You are a master ninjaaa!
Thank you Meta, I must install all of these into the new matlib function.
Thank You very much !

I've only just used 2.8, so a baby to this pool of experts... Any plans for compatibility for Beta version?
Thank you from making these materials available.
Please update it for blender 2.8
Can you make it work for 2.8 please? If there is an allready that supports 2.8, can you link it?
Hope you can make it work for 2.8 as well.
Thank you so much Im trying it now
Try Google Chrome to download zip
Thank you very much
Wow! This is sensational!!! Man, this is really a big feat! Thank you very much!
quality. Yes. it works perfectly on 2.8x. and eeve. Load it as and add-on. It will show in the Material tab/section. Pick a material and click on the apply icon. it will show (in the Shading workspace) how the Node is done. thank you very much for posting this
How did you make it work on 2.8?
Here is a short guide on how to setting it up for 2.8 https://i.imgur.com/h5N4YpJ.png
hey ty but doesnt work for me , only show few of the materials , u can append them but not add them to the librairy, only way is to add fake user and have them for ever as orphan loaded datas wich is lame
Hi, you Blender now has the addon built in. Matlibvx. you can still download this materials file and either place it in the matlib folder or in Blender 2.81, in the addons preferences, you can choose an extra location and add any blend files containing materials to the list.
thank you so much for this
Yeah if you follow the procedure in https://i.imgur.com/h5N4YpJ.png, then this will work perfectly for blender 2.8 eevee. Some of the materials may not work.
Thank you!... very useful
Really thankful, the possibilities now are immense.
I can't download it
Dark City You have to Login first then the download button will appear
Thanx a lot for this amazing addon..
Thank you very much :D !
thanks so much!! these are awesome!!
thank you for making this. your awesome!
Thanks a lot, Blend Swap also Ducky 3D
Hey I installed the addon but it says update to 2.8x required. What should I do? I have 2.9
with blender 2.8 idk how to add these textures onto a blendswap model, a blendswap model im trying to use has some parts that are purple and i want them to be colored with there texture. and i dont know how.
it is not working in blender 2.90
its need an upgrade to 2.8x
a 12MB file with 893 materials, so 0.0134 MB per material, also it only had a bunch of "sample materials" in it and idk why but even those didn't work
Thank you man
Thank you! are awesome!!
Thank you :)
is this is also for 2.79 mac version
This is very helpful. Thank You!
In BLender 2.93: 1. Unzip the Folder 2.Then go to Edit->Preferences 3. Click "install an ad-on." 4. Select "init.py" file 5. find and activate "Material: Material Library" Add-on.
Done! You can find Material Library VX in the materials Tab now! Have fun!
This procedure did not work for me in 2.93... in fact I cant add anything via addons. They do absolutely nothing. I even tried running Blender as an admin. I have full rights on the system. This is annoying.
Works really good with the new asset library. c:
how can this work in 3.0 alpha?
This seems like it might be beneficial, but I'm not seeing it work with my Blender 3.0. Any suggestions?
It's unfortunate it doesn't work with blender 3.0 :(
I downloaded and installed but it is not showing in 3.0?
same for me, what to do?
Thanks very very much!
Thank you very much!
it is not showing in 3.2
just wow, very useful, thank you!
