Product Notes


Physically plausible shading is now available for 3delight users with the aweSurface shader. aweSurface is a new, robust, highly optimized, physically plausible shader for DAZ Studio and 3Delight employing physically based rendering (PBR) metalness / roughness workflow. Using a primarily uber shader approach, it can be used to render materials such as dielectrics, glass and metal or even a mix of them.

This kit includes a plethora of tools to manage your rendering workflow with the new uber shader. Like an environment sphere with extra controls that allows live adjustments during live progressive rendering. Make exposure, saturation, gain/gamma or even apply blur to your HDRI texture on the fly.

Thank you all

@Benoaks There's an older manual based on older builds on my google drive - I've added lots of new stuff to the shader and supporting files, I'll be uploading the updated manual

@maneki_neto This is the full version.

I'm setting alternative ways for users who want to support me. Stay tuned.

I just started learning how to Render in 3DL and I went looking for this Awe Shading Kit but I couldn't find it. I was so bummed that it looked like it was gone forever. To see it available here - and for free! WHAT?! That made my month! THANK YOU, so much, Wowie!!

Is there a tutorial on how to use this? I have never seen it before? Very interested in seeing what it does.

@RAMWolff : yup, there actually was a post announcing this in the forum thread concerning the AWE.. which i ofc hadn't read yet, just bookmarked, since i didn't have the shader set yet XD. the thread bumped up in my list since wowie made a comment so i opened the thread and saw this ^^.

@wowie: thx again for sharing this :))
