What is Tactile

Greyscalegorilla Tactile is a growing library of the most beautiful and realistic 3D materials available anywhere. Using our new Tactile Capture Process, we’re bringing you a level of detail never seen before in the world of 3D design. The Tactile library incorporates standard material channels like diffuse, normal, and roughness, but also captures elusive real-world properties, like translucency and optical reflectance.


Today, we are releasing 5 unique, highly detailed Tactile material collections:

How does Tactile Work?

Working with Tactile materials in Cinema 4D is easy, visual and intuitive. Just open your Greyscalegorilla Plus Library Panel and drag the materials right onto your 3D object!

Tactile materials use the standard Physically Based Rendering Workflow (PBR) which makes them easier to work with and customize. Whether you are rendering with Redshift, Octane or Arnold, you’ll have access to flexible materials that look amazing.

Follow along with this training to learn how to use displacement with our Tactile materials for added realism and depth.


For Redshift Users

For Octane Users

For Arnold Users

    Hey friends! I have a situation with the update of the HUB, every time I mark it and give it install it makes it go to install and it disappears, I have not been able to use the new materials. I have c4d R25, if you can help me I would appreciate it.

    Would it be possible to use these with Corona Renderer for C4D?

    • Gery FernagutJanuary 12, 2023 at 9:30 am

      Are you really looking for corona update for your plugins ????? could be the best news of all time !!!!!!

    • Nick CampbellOctober 17, 2022 at 9:13 am

      These are fully compatible with Redshift, Octane and Arnold for now. But we are looking into Corona. Thanks!

    Is it only usable in c4d? If you are looking for someone to test it in Maya with vray let me know =)
    Am looking for Real Wood materials for a long time, and these really look promising!

    • Nick CampbellOctober 10, 2022 at 1:07 pm

      Thanks! Only compatible with C4D for now.

    Why can’t the new material be installed after downloading?

    • Nick CampbellOctober 10, 2022 at 1:07 pm

      Materials are already installed after downloading. Just open up the Plus Library.

    Looks awesome!, any plans to make it available for Maya and Vray?

  6. Chris JonesOctober 5, 2022 at 2:46 pm

    Not trolling here, but any reason Corona is off the roster? I would love to use some of these awesome looking textures in archive scenes but as I use Corona that’s not possible.

    These, and the other materials in your package look fantastic!

    • Nick CampbellOctober 5, 2022 at 4:12 pm

      Hi Chris! We don’t currently support Corona. But we are always looking to see what renderers people are using. Thanks for the kind words about our materials!

    Nick and Chad recreating the “pointing-at-computer” stock footage shot is pure gold.

    Did Mr. Rabinowitz join GSG?

    • Nick CampbellOctober 5, 2022 at 11:36 am

      Yes! As our new head of marketing!

    Good morning everyone
    Your products are absolutely amazing!
    I have long admired Your work and have been wondering if it is possible to purchase these materials in the form of images so that they can also be used in other software (I use Houdini, for example).
    I hope someday You will make it available.
