Quixel provided FOR FREE PREMIUM assets that you can download from the following links

Yannick provided a scene if you want to skipe the process to create your own take

Hi Giorgio,

Cool, thanks for this! Just curious, where is the scene you refer to? I can only see the Quixel assets... Sorry if I'm missing something obvious!

The Quixel stuff is cool, kudos to them for providing some assets for the challenge!

I notice that the Plants are missing their geometry except for mushroom_brown_T_pdvcB which is complete. All the others in there have textures but no geo...

Hello to all ! First of all sorry for not including the scene in the first post, now I've fixed it ! You will find also other assets where you will find grass+geometry. Ferns do not have geometry in the original assets, but in the scene you will find geo provided by Yannick.

Supplemental Information

Hi Folks,

This is likely old news for most of us but I figure it might be important/useful for newcomers. These are file hosting services ...

  1. They often display questionable advertisements on the web pages. Probably best to keep the young ones out of the room and let your "significant other" know that your relationship is fine and that you're not looking for "questionable" content.
  2. The files are either RAR or ZIP; see the table below. Some of these services may try to lure you into using EXE downloaders; this can be hazardous to the health of your computer and personal information. Cancel, and choose a different hosting link.
  3. Ensure that your anti-virus/malware and popup blockers are up-to-date and set to appropriately.
  4. Make absolutely certain to scan the download for malicious content as no checksum/hashes have been provided.

Would you happen to have a .ma or .mb version of this? I've been trying to get Maya to open .fbx files with different plugins, but it hasn't been working.

I can provide the scene in Mb if needed, (it was done in maya), But I will wait the ok from Jojo before doing that. Normaly FBX should be imported with no problem in Maya.

So far, here is my last version of the render I made

Well, I tried downloading these files but it starts to download as an exe file.
Can someone share all the files on Dropbox
  06 June 2017

Can you please share the file on Dropbox.I can't download this from the above mention link
  06 June 2017
i cant managte to download the files... i always ending up with .exe files...
  06 June 2017
Hello !
@ FeD of course you can share the maya file
@ all feel free to create mirrors wherever you prefer. I didn't provide a direct link since the downloads are almost 1 Gb and you can understand how much bandwidth they will take even for a few download.
About the mirrors I use Ublocker and also I suggest you to use a downloader like mipony.*
I've tried to click on the link send and for me the download just start. Any feedback appreciated.

i cant able to download file.plz upload maya file...

  06 June 2017
Here is the .mb files :

I uploaded only the models without texture so it is more light to dl.

JoJo, Why not just sharing the dropbox with all the Quixel models ? this would ne more easy.
Or create a Google drive just for the challenge (15go possible)
