Dear friends,

our first concrete library is now available! A set of 15 high quality materials to dress your models, with high resolution professional texture maps. During installation, a new sub folder called "Thea Concrete 01" is created under Materials data folder. the textures used have 4096 x 4096 resolution.

The textures have been setup with UV mapping for easy drag/drop right on your models.

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 thes 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

Thanks!

I'm just downloading the pack, but it's showing up as a zip file. With what do I have to replace '.zip' to make it a one click install package?

Nice attention, thanks a lot Patricks.
Maybe a wall type preview would have been more appropriate ;-)

Cheers
