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

This. I'd say to model the site or at least the way materials are shared/uploaded after Jeff Patton's mrMaterials website, which has unfortunately been down for quite some time.

Material preview render, .mat file and accompanying textures (if royalty free) should be included in a zip/rar file.
Also, everyone needs to render with the same file settings: gamma, exposure settings, # of passes, sampling, etc.

Perhaps this should be put to a community vote for optimum results?

Any way we could make the MAX version universal for all mats? Or push people to start upping .mat files? All the stuff I'd like to grab is upped with 2014, which I'm not running. Savings as 2012 for the default would be nice.

Well. I have 3dsmax2012...
-Today I downloaded a legal version of Autodesk Product Design Suite Ultimate 2014, 13.4gb zipped
-Then I installed only the 3dsmax Design 2014 from that, not the whole f'n 40gb unpacked  package
-Then I downloaded all the materials from coronamaterials.com, unpacked them
-Opened 3dsmax Design 2014, found out that I didnt have the latest license-file on our system
-Logged in to autodesk, filled in our companys info´n´shit
-Got the license-file and installed it to our licence-servers flex_lm-service
-Opened 3dsmax Design 2014 and realized  I need to install corona a6
-Opened all the max-files and gathered all the materials into a one .mat-file
-Found out that the .mat wont open in 3dsmax 2012 [RAGE FACE]
-Think hard.
-Opened 3dsmax Design 2014 and made 18 planes with all the materials from my 2014 .mat-file (all materials from coronamaterials.com)
-Saved it as a 2012-file
-Opened 3dsmax 2012 and the .max-file, made a new .mat-file by saving all the 18 planes materials [That went better than I expected-face]

EASY as 1-2-3. But I must say: The blue car-paint and old-metal -materials rule.
Also, would there be any easier way to import 2014-materials to 3dsmax 2012?

Most 3ds max materials haven't changed for ages, why autodesk can't make them backward compatible?
I'm not Corona Team member. Everything i say, is my personal opinion only.

Because they're Autodesk.

i found this script, Not tested  yet.

http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/mat-file-to-lower-version

I guess that'll work for people to convert down, but leaves people like me in limbo still as I can't use any of the uploaded files saved in 2014.

First of all, i'm loving the site! Maybe something that might need a fix, I downloaded a material that had a map I recognize it from my own viscorbel collection. I don't know the legal terms, but that might need some attention on the homepage.

Other then what other members posted, about a mat file, i think its awesome.

Kudos!

I haz question for the guy who made the website and for Keymaster:
I used Maxwell Render before (now I am a happy Corona user) - In maxwell & 3dsmax I can open material editor and press "web search" or something like that.
Could you guys implement a button to Corona, pressing that would bring a list or search box and you could search materials from CML?
After founding a material I would want, it would be downloaded and added to the material editor.

Corona is awesome now. With that the awesome level would rise by +3.
