Maxwell render materials library can be used for RW textures

Register for free and try downloading some of these materials. Most involve color, reflectivity, transparency mask, and bump image files that can be imported into VW/RW for image color, image reflectivity, mask transparency, and image bump shaders. Most are very nice quality images!

Can you import the actual material .rar file on RW?

No. The .RAR file is just a compressed file, it is not the actual Maxwell Render material file.

Expand the .RAR (or .ZIP) file and inside will be the separate .JPG or .PNG image files that you can repurpose for use in RW in the diffuse, bump, specular and displacement shader channels. You'll have to figure out which image file goes in which shader channel.

On Mac OS you can expand .RAR files with the freeware UnRarX

The .MXM file inside the .RAR file is the actual Maxwell Render material file; You can't use the .MXM file in Vw so you can throw it away.
