What does it do???
I looked for an answer and haven’t come across with anyone talking about it
Going back to your original question about why you don’t see anyone talking about it. There have been many discussions about Fabricator and other shaders. I had once even started a thread about fun with shaders. Unfortunately, last year DAZ changed the forums and the discussions are now in the archives. I was trying to track down some of the discussions, but didn’t see that the archives still contained renders, and shaders really shine when you can see what people do with them. Here’s the link though for the archives, if you ever feel like visiting the spirits of forums past : http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/ Mean.while, if no one else does it, I might start another Fun with Shaders thread in the Art Studio forum, now that my new PC is fully loaded with my content…somewhat.
The one thing we don’t know is if you use Poser, DAZ Studio, or some other program. Please be aware, that shaders and materials are made for specific programs. Shaders made for DAZ Studio, will not work in Poser and vice versa. Not without some tweaking, and sometimes not even then.
I can say with extreme confidence, that the shaders made by Marieah, Khory_D, Fisty, and so many others have been worth the price and more. While I still buy nice texture sets, the main thing I look for nowadays, is how well an outfit can be kitbashed, and how many material zones it has.
