Full Blender PBR Texture Set Support

Full Blender PBR Texture Set Support

 

Well, it’s been a while since I last created an update post on this site. I think it’s about time. Man does time fly. I hope you’ve all been doing well in the last few months.

Full Blender Support

Free Blender PBR Texture Set in CyclesI’ve now added full Blender support to this site! Before, users needed to download the Unreal Engine file option if they wanted to use the texture sets in Blender, and then invert the green channel on the DirectX normal map included to make it display correctly. I decided it was about time to send some love over to our awesome Blender community and create a download option just for them. ๐Ÿ™‚ So FreePBR.com now has options for Unity, Unreal Engine and now Blender users. The steel plate texture shown in the screenshot is from this site, and previewing in Blender Cycles.

Blender LogoKeep in mind as well that users of other software can easily use these texture sets as well. I love all users and will be looking into ways of making these textures as easy to integrate as possible, regardless of the software or engine you are using. But Arnold users in Maya, for example, can download the Blender files and use them directly because they share the same texture map files. I’ll be creating a post soon to give a bit more help for users not quite sure which files they should be downloading if they aren’t using Blender, Unity or Unreal Engine.

 

175+ PBR Texture Sets

175 PBR Texture SetsIt’s also worth mentioning that thereย are now over 175 free PBR texture sets for the community to download. I’ve been putting in more time into creating texture sets and getting them up on the site. I’m hoping you like the latest additions. ๐Ÿ™‚

I want to start filling in some gaps where I think this PBR texture collection is lacking. I brought in some wicker textures, some new metal ones as well as a crumpled paper. I also finally brought in a metal plating texture which felt was long overdue. In the near future, I’ll be focusing on categories I haven’t put much time or resources into, so check back often.

125 Free PBR Textures and Counting. :)

Thanks for all of the support the last few months. I’ve managed to up the free PBR texture count to 125. Next stop is 150. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not happy with the pace of things, but it should pick up now in the next few months. I have some interesting texture sets coming up in the pipeline, so keep checking back.

Some of you might have noticed I also released a free rock model. I might want to explore releasing more free pbr textured models as well in the coming months. What do you guys and gals think?

Now at 100+ PBR Textures!

Hey all.

I just thought I’d share the site’s milestone of having reached over 100 free PBR texture sets for the community! I’ve received a lot of positive feedback from users in the game dev and 3d community, and look forward to adding more free content in the years to come.

Please feel free to let me know what kinds of textures you would like to see in the future. I currently have a poll asking just that, so take some time and vote what you would like to see me focus on next. Or leave comments here as well.

Time to Add Unity Support :)

I thought I’d start posting updates for FreePBR.com to let people know where we intend to go and what we are planning.

We’ve put up a poll to see what Game Engines you guys and gals are primarily using. If you haven’t let us know through the poll what you are using yet, we encourage you to do so. This will help us streamline the PBR creation process down the road. ๐Ÿ™‚

So far, it’s clear that a little more than half of the users that come to this site are using UE4.

Coming in second with about 30% of the vote of users, Unity. So with that information in mind, we will be publishing both UE4 sets and Unity. ๐Ÿ™‚ Note that Unity texture sets will have a PSD metallness file that will contain the smoothness map in the alpha channel. Just make sure to select this option in Unity to get the smoothness map working. : )
