Drag-and-Drop Textures

Like the popular Everyday Material Collection, this collection includes fully assembled Cinema 4D materials. That means you don’t need to plug in the texture maps. You just drag, drop, and go.

Arnold and Redshift 2.6.28+ users can rely on the Greyscalegorilla Shader Ball to easily preview the materials in the Cinema 4D Content Browser. Octane 2018+ users will feel at home using the Modern Surface Material Collection in their Live Database (LiveDB).

The drag-and-drop functionality is limited to these three render engines, meaning that Standard/Physical are not supported.

Want to make tweaks to any of these materials? You can! Have total control to edit the textures or shaders to dial in the exact look you want.


What types of materials are included?

The Modern Surfaces Material Collection features 11 categories, all designed to work perfectly together. 250+ artfully assembled mid-century inspired materials built to appease even the most discerning Art Director.

Modern Essentials

Category essentials include new must-have wood, metal, and stone materials.

Modern Tones and Textures

In addition, some earth tones inspired a new collection of ceramic, paper, and terrazzo. The ceramic materials allow you to choose from an unglazed look, or a customizable matte, pitted, or shiny finish.

Modern Patterns

The most versatile categories are the brand-new patterns.

Modern Surface Material Collection - Patterns

With pattern blobs and pattern plastics you’ll find 60 unique patterns that can be easily altered to fit your clients color scheme, or you can browse the dozens of included color palettes for inspiration.

Pattern metals feature pre-built shaders with the same new patterns on top of gold, silver, and copper bases.

Which materials are customizable?

Each of the materials gives you total control to edit the textures or shaders to dial in the exact look you want. 140 select materials are designed to easily allow you to change the color (or colors) of the materials.

The patterns offer the most customization for color changes, photo-based materials like concrete and wood can not be as easily adjusted.

Curated Color Palettes

Want a look that flows well together? Find your look with professionally-curated color palettes.

Reflectance got to be too complicated. Topcoat simplifies my life just like HDRI Studio did to help get the look I wanted.

Best HDRI’s on the Net I have searched everywhere!

HDRI Link simplifies workflow and increases productivity by easing the burden when transitioning between different rendering engines in Cinema 4D.

HDRI Link is a shortcut to the end of your HDRI scavenger hunt.

HDRI Link has become my go-to plugin when doing HDRI lighting in Arnold.

I have TopCoat docked in my layout, I use it so much. I’m always throwing on and layering a few things. It’s optimized well, too.

With clients using Redshift, Octane, and Arnold, the ability to hop between them is invaluable. Plus the ability to swap studio presets and save them… I’m not sure how people will be able to work without this.

GorillaCam is what EVERYONE needs to add that extra layer of depth to their animation. I cannot see myself going back to the standard Cinema 4D camera ever.

It’s hard to think that a tiny little tag can change your workflow so dramatically. But HDRI Link does just that.

Light Kit Pro has completely changed how I approach lighting my 3D scenes, making the process quicker and more enjoyable than ever.
