I'm trying to make some ice texture and I found in net to use online material library from blenderkit but the problem is why the output/render not same like in the preview? Can somebody explain why? I've tried Material Properties -> Settings -> Displacement (displacement only)

Blend files: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_E2oCDpckqsvxCh5E9FherHO3OKOmneC/view

    $\begingroup$ Could be that you're applying the material to slightly different geometry. But it's more likely an issue with scale. Have you selected your object in object mode and applied the scale (Shortcut: CTRL-A and select scale.) $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 31, 2021 at 23:45
  • $\begingroup$ I agree with @MartyFouts this seems like a scaling issue $\endgroup$

To get a similar result to the preview try this:

Add a new sphere:
