We've made a new plugin for cinema 4D, hope you like it!

Hi guys!

We might have something that you guys would like. Maybe!

We’ve created a plugin called the PBR Texture Manager for Cinema 4D :zap:. You can store all your textures and import them with a single click. There is support for all major render engines.

We keep on updating and improving with the help of you guys. Our latest update includes the ability to create rendered thumbnails of your materials in which you can see all your materials and pick out the perfect one for your scene.

Please send us your comments so we can keep on improving your workflow!

Check out the plugin here :blush:

Looks great!

Question:

I work with a team at a small studio. We’re looking for a way to share materials between each other, ideally using our server to store the library of materials (We haven’t had much luck in getting C4D’s Content Browser to work). Would your plugin work for such a scenario?

@cmyk yes the plugin is perfect for this, since all textures are loaded from the server. If you add a new texture on the server it will update on all workstations :blush:.

This is really useful – I didn’t realise how many PBR textures I’d accumulated before I started arranging them in Texture Manger folders.

It needs a few issues fixing (like Specular levels and GGX vs Beckmann, which I’ve reported), and it’d be great to be able to make a folder preview on a per-material basis – rather than having to render every single folder, every single time you add. a new material. But it’s definitely a huge time saver.
