The BIS library is free and fully accessible for all users. Any content (materials or meshes) from the open part of the library can be downloaded by any user without any restrictions. So why do you need a pro- account?
At first, this is a way to support the project. Like any other free project, BIS needs for users support. However, the BIS pro- account is not only a status attachment. The pro- status does not provide any additional content, but it allows you to make your pipeline with BIS more convenient.
Pro- account users have the following advantages:
- Pro- users don’t need to switch to the BIS website to add/manage content in the active palette. A base account user has an active palette of 10 elements, and if he, for example, needs to use more than 10 materials in his work, he need to remove some old materials from the palette and add new ones in their place. Users with pro- accounts have a form for searching materials directly in Blender across the entire database. This allows while texturing/shading not to switch from Blender to the BIS site and back, which simplifies and speeds up the work process.
- Advertising on the site is disabled for users with pro- accounts. BIS does not abuse with adv, the site has just one banner. However, for users with pro- accounts, ads are not shown at all.
