Material Generation allows you to convert a single photograph or baked scan into a full, high quality PBR material, with industry leading results.

Convert a single photograph or baked scan into a full, high quality PBR material. Artists can create a sense of depth and shape in their 3D materials and have control over the microsurface and reflectance. Generate a full PBR material from a single image, supporting latest PBR standards that include albedo, normal, displacement, roughness, metallic and ambient occlusion.

ArtEngine is GPU accelerated, giving the Material Generation module the extra horsepower needed to produce industry leading results. Material Generation is just one of the myriad applications of ArtEngine from Artomatix, a perfect companion to photogrammetry.

Speaking as a texture creator, Artomatix truly is a God-send. The material synthesis features allow me to speed up the processing of my raw scans by at least 50%.”

EDUARD CALIMAN – 3D Visualization Artist In Architecture


The Material Generation Module enables 3D artists to convert a single texture map into a full PBR material from a single image. 

Material Generation Use Case

Use Case: Indie Studios without the budget for photogrammetry needing PBR maps.

Small independent studios cannot invest the time personnel training or the money required to achieve photogrammetric results. Because of this, they have to turn to other methods to gain the PBR maps required to make their assets photorealistic.

Converting Photos to PBR

If you don’t have access to a particular material, but you have a single photo taken with your camera or from an image search engine, Material Generation will turn your image into a comprehensive PBR material.
