Description:

original mat lib collected from the community form here:

http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?252957-Cycles_Matlib-Beta-Release!-Help-Wanted!

Thanks to everyone for their help.

the mat lib is a little large & needs refining. you can add & remove your own materials too.

It contains a .blend file with all the materials as Fake User for appending.

Also included is an .xml file providing a categories list for ready to use in Matlibvx addon.

https://sites.google.com/site/aleonserra/home/scripts/matlib-vx

simply put the .blend & .xml, in the matlibvx folder, in addons folder & enable the addon & enjoy the presets.

    Hiya Meta-Androcto, I'm trying to import the materials but no joy so far (just getting into the blender). Any chance you could do a quick video or written tutorial please. There's no 'matlibvx' folder only 'matlib'. I've but categories.xml and material.blend in the 'matlib' folder overwriting the default matlib ones and enabled the addon. But upon pressing the categories only an empty black square pops up. Any help much appreciated. I'd also like to keep the matlib categories and presets, hoping they work ok with cycles? Peace

    You stated to put the files in the matlibvx folder (if I do not have a matlibvx folder should I create one?) then put that folder in the addons folder???

    actually these arent textures they are Materials, so you dont need to unwrap your models, even if there are textures in the material they are procedural, this meens, you can adjust them an the also don't need unwrapping :)

    These are some of best materials I have seen for two reasons, they are simple and they look fantastic. Plus instead of providing just one overly complex material that you may only use once in a while, you have included an assortment that can be used daily. I thank you for the time you put into this project and for sharing it with others, that says a lot about you as an artist. These are simply great!

    After installing this; I suddenly am missing things in the Materials and Nodes functions. The button "Use Nodes" is no longer in the Properties Panel. Also when using "Add Node" (Shift+A); the "Shader Category is missing. So this means no BDSF shaders from scratch! Is anyone else having these troubles?

    I am using 2.72b

    Dear Meta, I have tried repeatedly to download blender 2.49b super build ( yours ) from graphicall, and from blender.org/previousreleases I have python 3.3 installed for running blender 2.6 - 2.73a but also have python 2.6.6, 2.6.2, and I think 2.5 installed for blender 2.49b, 2.49a, 2.49, and 2.48. Now I run windows 7 sp1, 64 bit, AMD Athlon dual core, nvidia geforce 7800 gtx, 4GB RAM In every case after install I only get consol and then splash screen, and then all stops. What am I doing wrong?
