I’m extremely excited to introduce The Pixel Lab “Material Pack!” Over 500 C4D materials/textures to help you speed up your workflow and focus on being creative! The textures are organized into the following categories: Alpha Overlays, Everyday Color, Fabric/Leather, Glass/Transparent/Ice, Luminance, Metal, Misc., Paper/Cardboard, Patterns/Tiles, Rubber/Plastic, Stone/Concrete/Dirt and Wood. It’s a .lib4d file so you can load these textures into your Cinema 4D Content Browser and easily access them at any time!

Best of all we are only asking $50 for the pack, which should make it very accessible to everyone.

    Is this compatible with Element 3D for After Effects?

    • Joren

      Unfortunately no, only for Cinema 4D…

      • Kyle

        Any plans on creating an Element 3D pack with these textures? I would snatch that up in a heartbeat!

        I also would love to use these in element 3D…I think your missing a huge market if you dont…and second question will they work in C4D lite..The one that ships with AE CC?

        • Joren

          Unfortunately I don’t think it will work with Lite. We will consider transferring to Element, but we have to investigate how hard it will be to port over first…

        Very interested in the texture pack if you make it available for Element 3D!

      It’s actually quite simple to bake textures to your models if you are modeling and texturing in C4D before importing them into Element3D. If you want to use them as drag-and-drop textures directly within Element3D, that’s a little tougher, but not impossible. You simply need to export the different channels from these textures as image maps which you drop into the corresponding layers in the Element3D texture. Many tutorials can be found online to do this.

    Jesus Christ, Joren!!
    That´s the best package EVER!

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Joren, it’s for Vray?

    • Joren

      Nope, just for standard C4D…

      • Alex

        Have you tried converting them to vray textures? I’m curious to know if they would be applicable. Thanks!

        • Joren

          I don’t have Vray, so I’m not sure, sorry!

            I haven’t tried this myself, but I’m pretty sure that standard Cinema 4D textures can now be rendered in VRAY for C4D (v1.8+).

    These look so good, will be buying this as soon as I have the money!

    Will these materials work in Cinema 4D Lite that comes inside After Effects CC?

    • Joren

      As far as I know yes, it should. If you buy it and it doesn’t work I can refund you, but it should…

    Sold, buddy. Good work.

    Are many of the noise patterns in some of the grunge, bumps, etc generated procedurally? Or are most of these image maps? I wish to buy a pack that doesn’t seem so tiled. I found Element3D C4D textures look too tiled.


    • Joren

      I would say it’s about 50% procedural, 50% images. Hope that helps!

    Is snow one of the materials? Did I miss it or are you planning on releasing it. I am most interested in that as well. Thanks.

    • Joren

      Yes, there is one called “snowman” which is a snowy look

    This looks great. You can never have enough materials at your fingertips. Thanks.
    Are image based textures any particular size?
    Will be making a positive purchase decision soon..

    • Joren

      It’s hard to say exactly, because there is a wide variety of sizes, but most are quite high resolution and were shot with a Canon DSLR.

    Amazing! Really fantastic work and a bargain price. Thank you for this and for everything you have done for the motion graphics community.

    Just tried a few of these out. Absolutely spectacular! It’s the only texture pack I’ll be using from now on. Thanks again.

    • Joren

      Thanks for the kind words mate, it means a lot to us!!

  16. zBorg

    These are really great – a huge variety of well-thought-out meticulously-useful materials – just the kind of thing I need. Many thanks!

    Best $50 I’ve spent in a long time…incredible value! Also, I am delighted to support you just a little bit. Thank for all of your tutorials and free models over the years.

    do they easily go to vray material?

    • Joren

      I don’t have Vray so I’m not sure, sorry mate!

    Done. Thanks Joren!

  26. Gokhan

    Hi Joren,firstly thank you very much for great job,it’s look great.
    I’m looking at the sample pictures that you share this page and
    I have a little request from you;
    I can’t see some liquids…You know “ready-to-use C4D liquids” are very rare ;)
    Beer, blood, wine, milk, ocean, cola, fruit juice, whisky etc….
    if possible can you added them?

    Thaks again for your great pack ;)

  27. Robocrat

    Well I guess I may never need to create a material from scratch ever again :)

  28. HC

    I almost bought this awesome pack for C4D til I realisted it is not compatibl with the Lite version. Is there any chance to get an update for that? I’m not the only one who requesting this I guess. Thanks for the answer!

  29. GraphicsAndBeer

    +1 For Element 3D, if you can cook something up I will buy it!!

  30. Gren Taylor
    Gren Taylor03-06-2014

    I want a Studio Lite version compatible or E3D version sooo bad!

  31. Rigo

    Yes please made this material for 3D element and let us know thanks

  32. Marv

    I was able to nab the NAB discount just in time! Thanks!

  33. Renderbots(C4D_Training)

    Stunning, Just Stunning :) and a BARGAIN!

    This is exactly what I was thinking about these being compatible with Element. If these textures have the provided Specular, Bump, Diffuse, etc. etc. image maps then theoretically you can rebuild whatever texture needed in Element.

    Can anyone confirm or deny if this pack includes separate image files for each texture? If so this is a for sure purchase for me…

    I am just not too familiar with C4D texture files… :(

    • Joren

      Hey mate, the pack does not specifically include separate image files for each texture so you would need C4D to rebuild them unfortunately. Cheers!

  35. Bauer

    I join the choir who´d buy this pack (and others) if they worked in Element 3D. They look awesome! :)

  36. larry

    please make textures maxwell render compatible. (.mxm)

  37. Eddie

    Just echoing opinions here…would be very interested in Element3D port. Looks great.

    Hi, does this work with Lite. FYI, ever since Adobe went CC2014, I haven’t been able to import Video Copilot’s “Pro Shaders” into the new version of Cinema 4D Lite

    • Joren

      It should work with Lite yes. You might lose a couple of the textures that use some advanced options, but the majority will work fine. If you’re not satisfied or it doesn’t work just let me know and I can refund your purchase. Thanks!

  39. Christiaan

    Hi Joran,

    would love to see this pack for Element 3D.
