Gemstone Materials STARTER for V-Ray and 3DS Max

UPDATE 2020-Mar-23: .vrmat (V-Ray for Rhino) materials were added to the product.

The material library of the transparent and semi-transparent gemstones. The library was made with V-Ray 2.40 for 3ds Max 2011 and V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino3D SR5.

We provided physically correct values of Fresnel IOR and Dispersion/Abbe properties. We examined hundreds of real gemstones studio photos and reproduced accurately the existing color variations of gems. We made a lot of test renders to tune each gemstone material to real-life look.

The library features:
  • 26 unique minerals with real-world color variations (32 gemstone materials in total)
  • Physically accurate optical properties
  • Thoroughly reproduced transparency and color tones of real minerals
  • Unique and meaningful names of the materials
  • Three deliver forms: one united library (3ds Max), 32 individual libraries (3ds Max, Rhino3D), 32 individual scenes with ‘shaderball’ (3ds Max)
  • Compliance with real world scale (system units – centimeters)
  • Compatibility with 3DS Max 2011+, Rhino3D SR5 and V-Ray 2.00+
  • Materials are completely ready for visualization
  • Previews were rendered in 3DS Max with V-Ray renderer
  • 17-page Catalogue of entire library with 600×600pix quality renders and hyperlinks for fast search
  • User Guide with detailed explanations on using of the library and tuning of gemstone materials to specific needs
