New online resource library C4D Center has made 87 Cinema 4D materials available to download for free.
The materials, which span a range of common texture types – including brick, stone, concrete, metal, wood and more abstract procedurals – are provided in C4D format with 2,048px texture maps.
Each download includes base colour, roughness, normal and height maps, and some include additional maps, including gloss, metallic, AO, diffuse, bump and blur.
All of the files are licensed under a
Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 custom licence.
Updated 15 March: C4D Center has been in touch to say that it has switched from Creative Commons to a custom licence. You can read the terms of the new licence here: it permits use in commercial projects.
