Registering

Edit:
I belive you should add a link to forum of some sort (here)

Edit2:
Why would you add sample scene to the first material you added?
25 MB is not much but its a waste of space.
Your inside corona settings are wack why 64? Its pointless, defaults work way better.

Also you start a corona material site with 1 literaly 1 material on start? Thats not promicing.

thank you Tanakov very much for your opinion, it is so important to me.

I belive you should add a link to forum of some sort (here) - i know

Edit2:
Why would you add sample scene to the first material you added?
25 MB is not much but its a waste of space. -i don't understand,please explain
Your inside corona settings are wack why 64? Its pointless, defaults work way better.-the settings are recommendation of some member's in forum, but i will check it.

Also you start a corona material site with 1 literaly 1 material on start? Thats not promicing.- give it a chance, people are registering all the time...soon the library will be very Useful

steyin , thanks, good point.

Leads to dowloading not only the materials, but also the sample scene, that is 25mb fat.

I would just recommend adding the max mtl file instead.

And about the materials, I was expecting you to make a fiew on your own atleast gather like 20~ to look more fancy.

The lighting in my car material seemed to be a bit darker so i suggest you state rules of what render settings should be used and what exposure and minimum passes, and like Tanakov said. the default settings work just fine, with yours the pre-calc phase is too long just for a simple test scene

Webpages with horizontal scrolling is evil.

Oh yes and also need a rule on naming convention for eg. no underscores or no sticking "corona" in front of each material name

I really dont like that smooth moving effect of top bar...  makes the whole page feel unstable and floating :)

First of all thank you for this site.

Layout could be better but improving it could be done also in the future without losing the content.
I agree with others that you cannot reload all the model just to catch the material or just give an option to choice from download all the model or just the mtl files with all the maps and procedural map (substance for example).

Maybe is better to write down a little piece of instructions for submitting...

Hi. My thoughts so far:

-missing texture warning on file opening - don't know why because the floor texture is present
-if you want all the previews to look the same, in the scene file "pass limit" should be taken into account, not "time limit". Users with different cpus will get different results
-not sure but maybe different highlight compression would be useful because you will get very sharp reflections when rendering reflective materials (for example glossy metal)
-strange rescaling of menu on the website when changing window size
-you could change site's title to "CML - Corona Materials Library" - the abbreviation is easier to remember

Also, uploading a 20mb file every time seems crazy to me. Maybe it would be possible to upload only preview and a .mat file?
