Essential Materials & Hdris
Essential Materials & HDRIs is a huge asset library for Blender 3.0+ consisting of nearly 2,400 materials and over 500 HDRIs! It was created for users who need a large collection of these assets for a reasonable price.

* Native Blender asset browser assets.
* Made for Cycles, though most materials (and all HDRIs) work with Eevee too.
* Assets are ready to go right out of the box and most are customizable.
* Easily adjust flake size and opacity for car paint, rust amount and colors for rusty metal, frost strength for frosted glass, etc.
* 232 shades/hues of procedural materials including Car Paint, Anodized Aluminum, Glossy Plastic, and Painted Wood.
* Browse and search assets quickly thanks to organized folders and sensible, consistent tags.

You can use any of the assets for personal or commercial use.
For example, if you model a bedroom scene (or just a bed) using the materials in this pack and publish that scene to a website to sell, you're more than welcome to pack the materials with your objects/scenes.
Repackaging them to sell in asset packs or material/HDRI libraries (like
this one), is not allowed. Anyone who purchases this agrees to abide by
Attribution is not required, but if you could link back to this page that would be much appreciated!
All of the standard material and HDRI files (.jpg and .exr files) were downloaded from various websites. Some were free, though many did require a paid account. You could technically go to the same sites, download the raw files, and build a similar library but that takes about six months (working roughly sixty hours a week) to accomplish. That’s how long it took me, with advanced computer skills.
The bottom line is, I don’t want any of my customers to feel swindled if they come across any of the assets elsewhere for free. I’m mainly charging for the significant amount of work I put in after simply downloading the files, including but not limited to:
Creating and configuring the node trees and groups
Marking the materials and HDRIs as assets
Consistently tagging every asset
Setting up unique thumbnail scenes and rendering out high-quality thumbnails
I realized that without this asset library, other users would have to do all of this work themselves in order to utilize these assets, which is very repetitive and tedious work.
I genuinely hope users find the assets worth the investment. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
