Dear friends,

our wall finish library is now available! A set of 16 high quality materials to dress your architectural walls, with high resolution professional texture maps. During installation, a new sub folder called "Wall Finish" is created under Materials data folder. A material name that starts with 2x2 means that the textures used have 2048 x 2048 resolution, 4x4 means 4096x4096 and "proce" means that a procedural texture is used.

The textures have been setup with Cubic mapping for easy assignment (drag & drop ready, no need to mess with scaling) - the only exception are the materials with displacement (UV mapping is required for them). Please, check this thread for a short tutorial on cubic mapping. The library can be installed and used only by licensed customers within Thea Render context [Copyright (C) - Solid Iris Technologies].

How to install the library
1. Go to our forum page that contains the library download links: http://www.thearender.com/forum/viewtop ... 111&t=7011
2. The above requires that you are a member of the licensed user club (if not, please send us an e-mail with your forum nickname along with your order id or reseller info).
3. Download the library somewhere on your hard disk (please, be patient, since these libraries are not small!)
4. You can launch Thea Studio and open the downloaded file (on Windows, you can more easily double click on the file from the explorer).
5. You have to agree on the license agreement before going on (which is the same updated licensed agreement as for Thea Render itself).
6. Then click on the check button and the necessary files will be copied to your Materials data folder (you can also change this default location).
7. Congratulations, now you have the library installed!

Important: library installation requires Thea revision 610 or above.

best wishes

When the files are installed the lib.thea file can be deleted? They do not have to be archived?

Yes, you can safely delete the lib.thea file after installation. But I would personally keep a backup with these lib.thea files,
so I don't have to re-download them when in need to install on another computer.
