Re: free Library of Materials, Environments and more

the models are for Blender, but maybe you can export them to collada for use in SU :hat:
textures and HDRI are always useful. :^:

Re: rendering metal

You can re-download the scene from the original link I sent to you in the private message.
Here it is with better mapping - still needs more work, but it's better.
this render was 2.5 minutes on Easy 09 with Fastforward AI denoise

Re: rendering metal

By the way - apparently most objects are painted groups. It is not recommended to paint groups. You must paint faces so that you can texture/UV map the mesh properly.

Re: rendering metal

Remapped the texture with Twilight render texture mapping funcion for cylindrical mapping (had to explode and regroup the component of the canon barrel and place the axis properly first)

Download scene sent via PM inbox.

This is not what you are going to want to hear, but I can find nothing wrong with the scene. The canon renders correctly no matter which render setting I choose. To improve the lighting I added the infinite plane object from Extensions>Twilight V2>Objects>Infinite Plane I applied a medium gray with ...
