Material Labs (MatLabs) are our preset scenes provided for your use in testing your materials and providing consistent sample images of that material in a neutral and calibrated environment. Leave the scene as is with the lighting and default camera untouched so that imagery created remains consistent. MatLabs located -Here-
In its simplest form it is merely a file repository system, but hopefully with the communities help, it will be a great resource for CG artist who use some version of the 'mental ray' or 'finalRender' render engine in the creation of art.
Mr Materials (MrM) is not affiliated with 'NVIDIA' or 'Cebas Visual Technology, Inc.' in any way, it is a private project created and maintained by Russell Thomas, founder of 3Dallusions LLC (3DA | 3DA Studio | Digital Sweatshop), with the help of mental ray guru Jeff Patton. The project came about because at the time that the process was started, there were no serious projects of this type supporting Mental Ray or finalRender. Both Russell and Jeff continually donate their time and efforts in various ways to support the computer graphics community and this was another area where they thought they could do some real good.
The end goal is to create a resource for mental ray and finalRender users from around the world with the help of other users from around the world. You are invited to help make it happen.
