Use this thread to post any free resources or anything else that you'd want to share with your fellow anons. Textures, materials, brushes, models, references, tutorials, anything that you think might benefit another anon, please post it here.
It might help to check the Pastebin before you post, in case there might be duplicates, but it's not a problem if you don't.

Almost everything on the Pastebin list should be free. That doesn't mean it's CC0, so if you're wary about copyright, it might be a good idea to check the license of what you're downloading first.
Some sites may require a signup, and some might be sites that are "free" but limit how much or what you can download.

Let's get to it!

Looking for a tablet

No.770761 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm entertaining the idea of getting a tablet for sculpting. Last time I used one of these was probably a decade ago and Wacom was the go-to manufacturer; I still have my old Bamboo fun laying around somewhere, even.

How's technology changed over the years? I don't doubt the prices for them have been driven down, but I'm not looking to cheap out; that being said, what's a decent entry-level tablet with a screen I can work on? If the cheap ones with screens are crap, what non-screen recommendations are there? Have the tablet drivers finally been made to play nice with multiple monitors of different sizes, or is it still fucky?

Unreal Engine General Thread

Anybody tried to play with raytracing? I wonder how capable will 3080 be for it. I'm hoping it could render decently smooth exterior scenes like a street with a bunch of buildings and props. Am I expecting too much from it? After all, most raytracing demos I've seen showcase small dioramas with 1 hero prop in focus.

I wonder what will happen when UE5 releases the new lighting system and which of the available ones will be used for the highest quality rendering - raytracing, Lumen, or baked lighting. Or some combination of those. I have no clue. I hope it won't become even a bigger mess with so many options and settings to tweak.
