More brick textures?

Is there a larger range of brick textures available in one of the plugins? Failing that can anyone recommend a range of architectural textures that import well into Lumion.
Thanks.

Don't forget cgtextures.

There used to be a free (use and derivative use of textures created) web based tool specifically for standard bricks and included a number of commerical brick products, able to combine different styles etc, very easy but not sure if it's around these days and lost track of.

You can also make your own by using one of the procedural texture tools such as Texture Maker or SpiralGraphics Genetica.  Sometimes it's quicker to make your own (or get modelhead to make for you  ;) )  rather than spend time searching.

Brick textures will look a lot better if you use V2 with the improved materials rendering, and you also create and apply a normalmap for the brick texture.
