With a simple cloud based interface for maximum ease of use, full Photoshop integration and real-time previewing both online and offline, you’ll find yourself texturing breath-taking environments faster than ever.


All materials from MEGASCANS. Scene rendered in real-time.

All the maps you need.

Get true Diffuse, Specular, Gloss, Normal (Surface+Subsurface), Displacement, Ambient Occlusion, Translucency, Scatter (Deep+Shallow) and Transparency, all pre-tiled and in noiseless 32 bit HDR, identically exposed for 100% consistency. No more need to retouch photographs or manually derive maps from the diffuse.


True realism.

With Megascans there is no guesswork -- each pixel of every map has been physically scanned, and every material component has been fully separated. Every reflectance value has been measured, and each normal reveals how light interacts with the surface and subsurface. This makes for true realism.


All materials from MEGASCANS. Rendered in 3DO.

The Process.

Our job at Quixel is to bring you the best possible scan materials. Since 2011 we have been tirelessly pushing ourselves to develop a fully portable HDR scanning technology, working hard to improve the machine every day. And each waking minute we explore the world in search of new inspiring environments to capture.


More every day.

With new materials added every day, the MEGASCANS library is in a constant phase of growth and improvement. As a paying subscriber, you’ll always be the first in line to all new additions and features.
