View Full Version : CGChain -- New and Improved Matcap Library

11 November 2008, 11:35 AM
Hey all ,

Hope it's okay to post here. I've posted this on zbrush central too.

Cgtalk has always been a great resource itself, and spawned many offshoot resources. The community is really strong and there is a wealth of talent on these boards. I've seen some amazing zbrush work here, fantastic and intricate sculpting. It's about time you guys started getting even more free matcaps to show off that work.

I wanted to let you all know that we at CGChain have started a new MatCap Library where anyone in the community can browse and download free MatCaps. These will always be free to a good home. The first 15 went up already, but we have a whole load more that will start to be added over the following days (takes a while).

We've set it up so you have the freedom to rate or comment upon each MatCap, and we hope this will allow us to create more of the stuff that people like and need. You'll notice, too, that we've seperated the MatCaps into Sculpting Caps and Exhibition Caps, as these two jobs may not go hand-in-hand.

If you have any Matcaps that you feel you would like to share, then please contact MonteCristo or CGStripe at CGChain and we'll be sure to take a look, and if we like it, rate and post them.

Downloads will require Registration, but later on we will be creating a few exclusive goodies for anyone that posts (or has ever posted work) that we feel deserves a plug.

Hope you all find this of use!

Hi guys,
To complement our matcap collection, and encourage users to post their own.
We have added a free matcap display model on cgchain.
