Very cool! Thanks for sharing…did you build this in ShaderMixer ?
You’re welcome! I find shadermixer limiting so I stopped using it very quickly. I prefer Shader builder which can do the same and more with more control. I just use Shadermixer for some DS default bricks like cameras and photon mapping ... but I don’t really create anything in it
Even this simple gooch shader can’t be built as is with shader mixer because the original shader calls some function like “illuminance” that I didn’t find in shadermixer. Plus I have all the renderman documentation to test so shader builder is more adapted.
These are wonderful Takeo! I knew you were good! I just played with them. You created the sdl! Oh my! I am so excited. I will be looking forward to your next ventures in the shader world! Someone who knows how to create the sdls. You said you just read. I have the Renderman manual. I guess I just have to knuckle down and start studying.
Glad to see you happy. You know I’m also a newb. I’m only beginning to understand some things. And I must say I did a lot of trials and errors to get it working in DAZ. I know 3delight has a big unrevealed potential in DAZ as it is used in movies but it will need a lot of work to get it.
Are you going to put up a shingle so us newbs can come in for consoltations?
Not really it’s a simple way to express my gratitude to the community because I learned a lot from reading posts in the forums and I also have some fun in the freebie contest which gives me something to practice my readings and skills. Plus I got DAZ pro for free and also lots of freebies to play with
Takeo did you know that Pen is one of the keepers of the shader miixer library? She is trying to gather information for receipes and techniques. It is her work that has been helpful to me about what little I know. You two should talk.
I know Pendraia she offered to help test shaders in Shadermixer in the old forum. As I said I don’t really work with shadermixer so I’m not sure I could be of a big help for these recipes, but if some people start some interresting thread I guess I’ll be there
