Linux

The Library contains a large collection of Twinmotion Assets to create indoor and outdoor scenes in the following categories: Materials, Vegetation and landscape, Objects, Lights, HDRI Environments, Characters, and Vehicles.

Smart Assets

Twinmotion Assets are categorized as fixed assets or Smart Assets. Smart Assets have custom parameters that can be modified. For example, you can change the age and growth pattern of Trees, modify the tint of their leaves and bark, and have the seasons and wind have an effect on them.

Animated Humans and Animated Groups in the Character category are also Smart Assets, as they can be modified with Cloth color, Pose and Animation presets.

Other Smart Assets in the Library include Decals, Flags, Water objects, Sounds, Doors, Bushes, Grass, HDRI Environments, Cars, Aircraft and Construction Machines.

Using Twinmotion Assets

Many Twinmotion Assets are available locally with your Twinmotion installation and can be accessed instantly from the Library. To reduce local storage requirements on your computer, other Twinmotion Assets are stored on a dedicated server online. To use them, you must first log into your Epic Account and download them.

Assets that need to be downloaded have a Download icon next to their image in the Library, as shown below. Once the assets have been downloaded, the Download icon no longer appears.

Twinmotion Assets in the Library

The following sections provide a brief overview of the assets in the Twinmotion Library.

Materials

Materials are applied to objects and geometry to simulate the appearance and texture of realistic surfaces, such as glass, metal, and brick. The Twinmotion Library contains a large variety of Materials that react to lights and the environment.

The Materials assets are classified in the following categories: Glass, Metal, Concrete, Wood, Stones, Brick, Ground, Plastic, Wall coverings, Roof coverings, Ceilings, Grids, Marble and granite, Tiles, Fabric, and Leather. The Materials category also contains assets that simulate Water, create Translucent and Neon effects, and assets that can be used for Modeling. Videos can also be added and applied on objects to create animated textures.

Vegetation and landscape

Vegetation assets include a variety of natural vegetation and scenery such as Trees, Bushes, Grass and flowers, Detail grasses, and Rocks. In Twinmotion, Trees, Bushes, and Grass are Smart Assets, which means that they are affected by wind and the change of seasons; you can also change several of their properties such as growth patterns, age, and color.

To easily add vegetation to large areas in a scene, use the Vegetation Paint and Vegetation Scatter tools or the Multidrop feature.

The HDRI Environments category contains High Dynamic Range Images (HDRIs) that can be used in Sky Lights and Backdrops that provide realistic lighting scenarios, reflections, and backgrounds for your Twinmotion scenes.

These HDRI assets are organized in the Library as follows:

Skies

To generate lighting and reflections that simulate realistic Low sun, Morning and afternoon, and Noon conditions, use the HDRIs in this category. Each category has its respective Clear, Cloudy, and Overcast sections.

Characters

Populate your Twinmotion scenes using animated and static photorealistic human and animal characters in the following categories:

Animated humans: Animated human characters that can be rotated and move in the scene according to Pose presets that you select, such as Speaking, Idle, Sitting and Walking. Several Cloth color presets are also provided.

Groups: Characters from the Animated humans category that are grouped together. Characters can be added or deleted from the group.

Posed Humans: 3D scanned human characters and groups of characters in various static poses.

Cutout: Static 2D human characters and groups of characters. The image of the character can be replaced by applying a color or texture to the cutout.

Animals: Animated mammals, birds, and fish that animate in the scene, and can be translated, rotated, and scaled.
