Use the ones you've got as a basis for creating more.

Right click on a material similar to what you want in the materials palette and select Copy and Edit. This then creates a new material based on the existing one and you can then change the colour/texture/reflectivity etc. and save it with a new name.

OK, THANKS 4 YOUR HELP.

www.accustudio.com has a bunch of ready to bake materials. There are also tutorials on making your own materials. That's one of the basics of nXt you'll have to master.

If you're looking for something specific and are having trouble creating it, you can always post a message here and there are plenty of people that would be more than happy to help.

does that includes you peter?....:D:D:D:D:D

The best materials you can make are by yourself, get a nice seamless texture and play with the properties. As Peter said, use the existing preset materials to make your compound materials. You can also create excellent materials using good textures.

"Here's the latest render using metallic materials. The chrome now looks a lot better. I do feel though that the reflected light on the back wall is too bright."

"Ah-- so that's a function of the material type.  The standard material won't give you a mirror anymore.  You need to change the material to metallic and you should get something more familiar.  Use the Type popdown on the…"

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"It's interesting-- overall the quality of this interior is very high for that short amount of processing, and may be acceptable for certain scenes.  In this one, however, there are some reflective caustics that are taking longer to…"

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
