April 5, 2022 – New Surface Imperfections

Just when you thought you had ALL the Surface Imperfections, you get another detail-packed collection delivered right to your account.

See the news post for the full details


February 2022 – Now Available in Greyscalegorilla Plus:

  • Align – a new plugin created to help you align and distribute your objects with ease
  • Space HDRIs – 20 cosmic maps that will make your next render extra(terrestrial)
  • Copy Machine – a new collection of Surface Imperfections to add the realistic touches your render is missing

HDRIs That Are Out of this World!

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far (you know where this is headed). You’ve all heard the rumors of Space HDRIs. This long-awaited collection is finally here. Now available in Plus, a pack of 20 maps created specifically for cosmic renders. Your new Space HDRIs are high-resolution and easy-to-use, with a variety of Alien Skies, Stars, Nebula, and Aurora Borealis. The possibilities are astronomical.

Nick Denboer - Greyscalegorilla plus update feb 2022

New Surface Imperfections. Copy That.

A new collection of Surface Imperfections joins its 5 counterparts. The 6th collection, called Copy Machine, offers 10 high-resolution textures. These maps include random arrays of dots, marring an otherwise perfect copy. We all know the typical Copy Machine snafus: Too light. Too dark. Lines across your paper. Pair Copy Machine with our Paper Materials, bump up the wrinkle level, and create a really authentic “paper jam”.

paper Greyscalegorilla plus update feb 2022

New Plugin – Line ‘Em Up.

Looking for a quick and easy way to align your objects in Cinema 4D? Look no further. Today, Plus members can install a brand new plugin that does just that. Align was developed to help you quickly and accurately line up the objects in your next render. Align Left. Align Right. Top. Bottom. (You get the idea). Align objects based on their bounding box, or distribute objects evenly based on their pivot point. If you’ve been doing this in Illustrator or Photoshop, you know how beneficial this tool is. It’s never been possible in Cinema 4D… until now!
