Testimonials


"CMV is an ultra solid and accurate foundation upon which artists can easily build nearly any material imaginable."

Rico Cilliers, Freelance CG Generalist



"Creating shaders was always a very time-consuming part of my job, so when I opened CMV for the first time and swept through all these smart and well-documented node groups, it was a joy. Now I can focus on getting things exactly the way I want, instead of spending precious time reinventing the wheel setting everything from scratch each time I start a new project." 
— Guilherme Henrique, 3D Artist/Art Manager at Blender Guru


"It's beautiful. Not only will CMV save you time with its plethora of amazing materials to be used in all sorts of situations, but you'll be able to study the materials and learn from one of the best shading artists around."

Greg Zaal, Lighting and Shading Artist
