Really? :)

Will be cool if that's will realize like in Sigershaders library http://prntscr.com/juwrr3 or it would be a possible turn off it somewhere in system settings

Like and appreciate the V2 mat library!  Would like to see more common material variations such as: Stainless steel, Gold.
Yep Stainless steel would be good, Brushed aluminium too

Id like to suggest a small correction in some of the mats, fabrics tend to have Output set to +50 that results in really strong white halo and tottaly red albedo.
I tone it down to 5 or so each time, because it looks bad otherwise. Can you look in to that?

where i can download this?

The Corona Material Library is part of the Corona Installer, so https://corona-renderer.com/download is the place to get it. If you want to install the Material Library from the file (so that you don't have to wait for the installer to download it as part of the installation), see https://coronarenderer.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/12000036778-how-to-install-the-material-library-in-offline-mode- (but you do still need to install it through running the Corona Installer).

Propose to include in Corona material Library section "Environment" with some kinds of free simple HDRI's, may be only with lights areas, something like in KeyShort, for fast testing
models and materials after converting them from Vray, for example:)

That is a good idea, but remember that good HDRI's tend to have enormous amounts of mb's, that would really make the library pain to download.

I posted back in Nov 2017 asking if corona materials were available in imperial units and not just metric. I wanted to check back in and see if anything had been done about that. I wish I could use the corona material library as is, without having to go and change my units and save out each material that I want to use. If not, are there any plans to do this? I'm in archviz in US, so I'm required to use imperial.

Thank

Hi. In the latest version of the build in material library, the units should match the scene units when you drag&drop/apply the materials. Haven't tried with imperial, but since it's scene dependent, I believe it should work with these units to.

Thanks. And am I supposed to use "Real World Map" size in the UVW map? Some materials are hard to tell exactly what size they are supposed to be.

Yes, unless you're using materials based on Corona Triplanar map. In such cases the objects UVW doesn't matter.

Hope it helps.

Do we get any saying in what materials should be included in the next corona Material Library that you were hiring someone?

Some of the materials created last time were impressive but I never seen any of them used in Corona Gallery like the roof tiles in XX options. (Great idea, but useless as its not procedural~)

I wouldn't look to the Gallery, as it only updates once maybe twice a year at the moment :)
