AAA Material (Blender 3.2)
Please Read the FAQ & Documentation before you purchase.
Current version: 0.1.0
AAA (Almost Anything Awesome) Material for Blender is an easy and powerful solution for building complex material setups. It could get heavy on your system so make sure that your machine is strong enough. Of course, it also depends on what you are using it for. If you have at least GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, you should be good to go.
If previewing the material in a 3D viewport is not your priority, then you can work on a lower specs machine, powered with the GPU such as 1080 Ti. Sometimes you'll only be interested in generating various texture maps, like Diffuse, and Roughness maps, because you'll be using them in another package. This means that previewing Material Output through Blender's 3D Viewport Render Preview is really not that important, since you'll be able to preview each pass separately.
Triple A Material is designed to be used with Cycles, although it will work with Eevee as well, just have in mind that the results will be slightly different. Cycles will also allow you to work a lot faster.

What product variation is right for me (Basic, Pro or Pro Studio)?
Pro - for one (1) user who wants the material as well as the image textures (fingerprints, rust, stains, etc.) and all the future assets
Pro Studio - for up to five (2-5) users who want the material as well as the image textures (fingerprints, rust, stains, etc.) and all the future assets
Basic - for one (1) user who only wants the material and doesn't care about the image textures (fingerprints, rust, stains, etc.) that can be seen in the promo video(s), or any future assets
Will it work with Eevee?
It will work with Eevee but we strongly recommend that you only use it with Cycles because of the speed and the fact that you will get better results that way, especially if you plan to bake different render passes. Of course, a solid GPU (2080 Ti at least) is a must. AAA Material is a very complex node setup and sometimes Eevee struggles with it more than it is acceptable for any user.
What computer specs are recommended?
Since it is designed for Cycles, AAA Material will benefit from a solid GPU. 2080 Ti (and above) is recommended. If you only plan to work by previewing render passes in 3D Viewport, then 1080 Ti will be enough, but not enough for previewing the final material.
How to use AAA Material?
For now, just append the AAA Material from inside AAA_Material_X_X_X.blend via File/Append.
Will there be a AAA Material addon available?
It already exist, but we decided to postpone its release until we gather enough feedback from the customers. We want to implement features that might be missing. Unfortunately, we can't make any promises about the release date so you'll just have to wait. The method described above should work equally fast, if not faster.
You will find all the most important instructions inside the AAA_Material node tree setup. Other than that, please watch the introduction video as well as any other video that might have been released in the meantime.
