View Full Version : Materials

03 March 2004, 05:15 PM
I'm pretty new to LW, and have been concentrating on modelling and whatnot for the most part. However, I was wondering if people knew of some good sites with some materials for download. Any kind of materials really, just something for reference to see how exactly various surfaces and effects are achieved.

If you sign in on the Newtek site you can download LOTS of textures. Most are realistic which is what makes Lightwave look so realistic. I'd recommend doing what I do, get a digital camera and shoot every texture you can lay your eyes on and create a texture library of your won. As far as form fitting textures for cars, space ships, faces, etc, you'll have to follow the tutorials for that and airbrush them by hand in Photoshop.

I have downloaded several textures from LW's site, and I also primarily shoot my own textures with my digital camera.

My question was more meant for actual material presets. Things like a good car paint, plastic, chrome, etc, etc.

You can find a few presets here

There were tons of them in but the site was attacked by hackers.It will work again so you might want to have a look then.
