PBR/PBS Textures in Blender

Still, there isn’t much said in reference to using PBR textures in Blender, but I wanted to point out that is can be done in a fairly simple manner.  We talked about creating PBR textures for Blender, but I didn’t go into great detail as to how and why. So, to help remedy that issue, I now have a tutorial showing you how to take PBR textures from GameTextures.com, and use them in Blender.

Needless to say, this will probably be obsolete when Blender does get true PBR support, but for now, we can still get some great materials with Physically Based Rendering textures.

EDIT: I made some very new user mistakes in the video on the setup. Here’s my current PBR setup in Blender:
