Using CC0 Textures in Blender

Basic Setup

This is a simple material setup for using CC0 Textures in Blender. It works for materials that do not have a metalness (met) or mask map.

Advanced Setup

If you need to include the mask and the metalness map the setup looks like this:


Microdisplacement Setup

If you want to use microdisplacement you need to set it up like this:

Make sure to enable the following settings to actually see an effect:

  • In the Render Properties switch the Feature Set to “Experimental”
  • Add a Subdivision Surface modifier to the object and set the checkbox for “Adapdive”
  • In the Material Properties go to Settings → Surface and switch the Displacement to “Displacement Only”
