License

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 these terms.

Attribution is not required, but if you could link back to this page that would be much appreciated!


Disclosure

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 tedious work.

I genuinely hope users find the assets worth the investment. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
