Get 150+ free automotive materials for Unreal Engine

Epic Games has updated its free set of PBR automotive materials for Unreal Engine to take advantage of the new features in the game engine, including ray tracing and triplanar projection.

Over 150 free exterior and interior car materials, including paint, metal, glass and carbon fibre
The collection, which comprises 186 materials and material instances, includes both exterior and interior materials, including car paint, metals, glass, leather, textiles, wood and carbon fibre.

Accompanying texture maps are provided at resolutions up to 4,096 x 4,096px.

The files were updated earlier this year to take advantage of Unreal Engine’s new real-time ray tracing capabilities – officially now production-ready, as of last month’s Unreal Engine 4.25.

The latest update adds support for 4.25’s new clear coat shading model, plus option to rotate triplanar texture projections, making it easier to control the flow of wood grain and brushed metal.

Epic has also released a free beach scene as a backdrop for automotive renders.

System requirements and availability
Epic Games’ Automotive Materials collection is available free, and is compatible with version 4.24+ of the Unreal Editor, running on Windows only.

The files are only licensed for use with Unreal Engine, but can be used in commercial projects.
