Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use Free Assets commercially?
Access to Free Assets is intended for testing ScansLibrary assets and its integration. As such, they are not to be used commercially on any trial account. However, if you have an active ScansLibrary subscription (Personal license, Indie license, Business License, Studio Licenses), feel free to use even these Free Assets commercially.
How often are new scans added?
New scans are released on a weekly basis, and new entire locations and scan categories are released every season.
Can I import the assets into a "CUSTOM" scene and sell in Stores? (TurboSquid, UnrealEngine Marketplace, Unity Asset Store etc.)
Unfortunately no, this is considered redistribution as both textures and models will be included in the distribution of the sample scene.
Is the data consistent across the library?
Yes, all surfaces are calibrated consistently across the entire library and adhere to a consistent texel density, and all geometry follows the exact same standard for LOD steps, topology, UV mapping, baking and consistent mesh scale.
Which map resolutions are supported?
The highest resolution available is 8K. All 3D Asset scans support 8K maps, and the max resolution for surfaces range between 4K-8K depending on surface area (1 x 1 m / 2 x 2 m / 3 x 3 m). Atlases have a max resolution of 4K due to the smaller size of the scan subjects.
Which file formats are supported?
Maps can be downloaded as either 8 bits per channel JPEG and 32 bits EXR. The JPEG file formats have been selected simply because of their efficient file size. Meshes can be downloaded as either FBX and OBJ . We also support .uasset for UnrealEngine 5 and .usd for Nvidia Omniverse.
How do I import .UASSET files into the UnrealEngine project?
First, .uasset format only supports version 5.0 and higher. You should extract the "ScansLibrary" folder into the "Content" file of your project..
Example: Your_Project\Content\ScansLibrary\3D_Assets\ ...
What maps are included and how do I use them?
Each material is identically scanned, calibrated and processed and thus follows a consistent standard. Both Metalness and Specular shader workflows are supported standards. Maps are provided for both real-time and offline rendering contexts. This means the scanned maps plug into Unreal Engine 4-5, V-Ray, Octane, Arnold, Nuke, Mari, Unity3D, Maxwell, Cryengine, Redshift, Mizuchi and any other software that supports standard PBR workflows.
Can I redownload textures or assets without spending credits again? Where can I find them?
